In 1999, Huang released a completely new idea - GPU and 'Huang's Law' to upgrade the product once every six months and double the graphics card feature. He also added more CPU functions to broaden its market. However, when Intel and AMD ventured into the high-end graphics market, Nvidia suffered a bottleneck in the product's development. In September last year, Huang announced that he would give up chipset business and transfer to mobile processor market, taking it as the company's most important business in the future. But, the competition of mobile processor market was fierce too. His competitors are all tycoons including Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and Samsung. Thus, Nvidia's prospect of entering the mobile processor market was extremely rocky.
