Intel CEO’s remarks stirred controversy and were refuted by Nvidia executives

Recently, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said in an interview with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that the reason why rival Nvidia can gain a dominant position in the field of AI chips is purely a fluke. He said that if Intel had not terminated the Larrabee processor project that year, it would have made great achievements in the field of AI.

In response, Bryan Catanzaro, vice president of applied deep learning research at Nvidia, fought back against Gelsinger's statement. He said on social media that Nvidia's lead is not a fluke, but comes from vision and execution, which is what Intel lacks.
