NVIDIA Faces Surprise Antitrust Raid in France Amid AI Success

French Antitrust Authorities Investigate Graphics Card Giant NVIDIA

The French Competition Authority conducted an unexpected raid on Wednesday morning, targeting “a company suspected of having implemented anticompetitive practices in the graphics cards sector.” The regulator’s brief press release provided limited details, but it is part of a broader investigation into the health of the cloud computing market. The primary focus of this inquiry is to determine whether newer companies face unfair disadvantages when competing with established industry giants. The investigation’s findings, released in June, revolved around Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, identifying concerns about the ease with which new operators can gain market share.
