Nvidia's Jensen Huang Surpasses Michael Dell In Wealth As Company's Market Cap Nears $3T: Report

Zinger Key Points
  • Jensen Huang's net worth surges past $106 billion, making him the 13th richest person globally.
  • Nvidia's market cap nears $3 trillion, driven by soaring demand for AI chips.

Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia Corporation NVDA, has ascended the wealth ladder as his company’s market value nears $3 trillion due to steady growth.

Yesterday, Huang surpassed Michael Dell, the CEO of Dell Technologies Inc. DELL to claim the 13th spot on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, with a net worth of $106.1 billion.

His wealth surged by over $62 billion this year, driven by a relentless demand for Nvidia chips fueling artificial intelligence tasks, Bloomberg reported.

At 61, Huang has led a cohort of tech billionaires in the AI-driven surge dubbed “Jensanity” by analysts, with Lisa Su of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD and Charles Liang of Super Micro Computer, Inc. SMCI also reaping benefits, the report added.

In the last month, Huang’s wealth eclipsed that of each member of the Walton family, America’s wealthiest, after another stellar quarter from Nvidia.

Huang’s riches originate from his 3.5% ownership in Santa Clara’s Nvidia, which was established with Chris Malachowsky and Curtis Priem in 1993.

Nvidia recently became the first chip firm to reach a $3 trillion market cap, surpassing Apple Inc. AAPL.

Dell, aged 59, boasts a $105.9 billion net worth, which stems from his computer hardware company. Despite software magnates dominating the tech billionaire landscape, Dell Technologies has flourished alongside Nvidia’s AI triumph, aligning with Super Micro as Nvidia’s favored collaborator for hardware needs.

Dell’s fortune soared to over $100 billion in March but faced a setback after underwhelming earnings reports, causing a nearly $12 billion dip in value in a single day.
