It hasn’t even been a year since NVIDIA announced its first server CPU, “Grace,” an Arm-based processor designed for giant AI and high-performance computing workloads in the data center, but the company continues to signal its interest of being known as more than just a GPU company.

As reported by Globes, an Israel-based business news website, NVIDIA’s Israel division is planning to hire hundreds of new employees to help design and engineer the company’s next-generation CPUs. NVIDIA Israel already has 2,800 employees in seven centers, according to the publication.

“Israel, with its unique wealth of talent, is a key player in the global tech ecosystem, and we are excited to be creating a new CPU group here,” said Michael Kagan, NVIDIA’s CTO. “We look forward to further growing our local R&D activities both in this area and in our extensive work supporting the local ecosystem through unique programs for startups and developers.”

NVIDIA Israel also has a hand in the development of the company’s next-gen high-speed networking and HPC technologies, data processing units, AI research, and more. The unit has grown significantly since NVIDIA’s acquisition of Mellanox last year for $7 billion, Globes pointed out.
