Tesla likely to spend $3 billion-$4 billion on Nvidia hardware this year

COMPUTEX in Taipei

(Reuters) -Tesla will likely spend between $3 billion and $4 billion on its purchases of chip company Nvidia's hardware this year, CEO Elon Musk said in a post on X on Tuesday.

Musk also said that out of the $10 billion in artificial intelligence-related capital expenditure this year, around half would be internal spend.

"For building the AI training superclusters, NVidia (sic) hardware is about 2/3 of the cost," he said on X.

Earlier on Tuesday, Tesla reportedly told Nvidia to prioritize shipments of AI processors to his companies X and xAI over the electric-vehicle maker.

The development also comes ahead of a crucial shareholder vote on his pay package at Tesla.
