Nvidia Announces Plans for Brand New HQ Campus

By - Source: Nvidia | B 10 comments

New digs for Santa Clara employees.

While rival AMD is selling its iconic Lonestar campus in Austin, Nvidia is moving on up. The company today announced plans for a brand new campus for its expanding workforce. Speaking via a blog post today, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun revealed that the current Nvidia HQ is running out of space and that there is no room for any more people. As such, they've decided the best solution is build a brand new HQ right next to it.

"[...] our headquarters in Santa Clara, just a few blocks from where we started, barely has a spare desk. We’re absolutely bursting at the seams," he said, adding, "So, we’ve decided to build a new campus right across the street, one as distinctive as our company."

 

The new building will be designed by architecture firm Gensler and the project will be led by Hao Ko, a Harvard-educated architect. Huang says the design "harmonizes smart functionality and a shape that connects with and inspires our employees."

"Its vast open floors will facilitate our cross-functional work. The nature of building our products requires experts from multiple disciplines to come together, and this building is designed above all for collaboration."

 

Jen-Hsun says the design is efficient in space, energy, environment, and cost. Unfortunately, no details were offered on the cost of the building, nor do we know when construction will start, when it will be finished, or how many employees this new facility will house. There's also no information on what will become of the old campus. Will this building be in addition to the old campus or will it replace it? Will everyone have to up sticks and move across the road or will some people be left in the drab building of yesteryear while others get a shiny new office? Time will tell. In the mean time, check out the pretty renderings!

    They should make the building in the shape of the Nvidia logo.
    Imagine how annoying it would be walking to your office at the end of the building. lol

    Hmm, I always wonder how beneficial it really is for these companies when they move to new locations.

    With our elected parasites talking about more and higher taxes, plus the onerous burdens of "Obamacare," I'm really surprised they're building it in the USA. Mind you, I'm not complaining; I think that's great. I'm just surprised.

    i feel like this is a big part from X-box and Ps4 both siding with Amd components. Well im happy, they need the support to get back some foot hold. :)

    It will be so funny when intel integrates the its own GPU in the CPU and its better then anything nvida can com up with.

    The motherboard manufacturers don't see it coming. The whole CPU and GPU with memory, will be one unit. The motherboard will be just I/O. It will be funny when all them get F+cked over at the same time.

    Go Intel, The new evil empire. Why? Get more speed and use less power and lower cost. It is the only way. They are dumb at intel but in the end they will work it out. I think the standard will be 1440 or 1600p for video so it still looks good on 27.

    When I am write most folk will pretend they thought it up too. :)

    Really? Must everything turn into political BS?

    I think this is really cool for NVIDIA, glad to see them expanding and remaining in California.
