BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU antitrust regulators have not opened a formal investigation into chips used for artificial intelligence, the European Commission said on Monday, days after the French competition authority raided Nvidia for alleged anti-competitive practices.
“There is no formal investigation by the Commission into the matter you refer to,” a spokesperson for the EU executive said in an email to Reuters when asked about the issue.
Nvidia had declined to comment following the French raid.
Bloomberg News last week said the EU antitrust watchdog was informally collecting views on potentially abusive practices in the market for graphics process units.
