Nvidia Plans To Release Rubin, an AI Platform, in 2026

As one of several tech releases, Nvidia will introduce an artificial intelligence (AI) platform in 2026.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang stated at a speech at National Taiwan University on Sunday, June 2, that the company plans to update its AI accelerators annually. The Blackwell Ultra processor is expected in 2025, and the next-generation platform, known as Rubin, would follow the following year.

Along with this growth, the CEO anticipates that an increasing number of businesses and governmental organizations will adopt generative AI, emphasizing, as he did at the university last year, that those that don’t would be left behind.

He went on to say that conventional computer techniques will become obsolete as the volume of data that needs to be handled keeps increasing. Huang stated that Nvidia’s method of accelerated processing is the only way the company can cut expenses.

He stated that Nvidia’s technology resulted in 98% cost savings and 97% less energy consumption, calling it “CEO math, which is not accurate, but it is correct.”

The next iteration of the essential high-bandwidth memory that has been a production barrier for AI accelerators, HBM4, will reportedly be used by the Rubin AI platform. Huang did not elaborate on the specifics of the future products beyond that.

His remarks coincide with Nvidia’s impending rise to the rank of second most valuable corporation in the world, behind Microsoft, which overtook Apple earlier this year.

Due to its position as the manufacturer of the chips that underpin almost all AI applications, Nvidia has seen rapid growth. The company’s worth has surpassed that of Saudi Aramco, Amazon, and Alphabet thus far this year.

Last month, the company released earnings that demonstrated the AI boom’s ongoing strength. Revenue reached $26 billion, up 18% from the previous quarter and 262% from the same time last year.

The scene is bustling with activity, with big giants racing to incorporate AI into their goods and services and startups announcing massive fundraising rounds. PYMNTS noted in May that the firm has been at the center of an AI “gold rush.”

Prof. of corporate law at Case Western Reserve University’s School of Law Anat Alon-Beck told PYMNTS, “The robots are definitely here; we are now living in the age of artificial intelligence.” She praised Nvidia’s outstanding performance and prospects, calling the business “the poster child of AI.”
