A license-plate-sized hardware was reportedly revealed by NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA), which according to the company, is capable of matching 100 servers in a data center. The hardware is to be used for the enhancement of autonomous taxis.

NVIDIA shares closed higher for a third consecutive trading session on Tuesday. The stock went up 1.91% ($3.54) to $188.93, after touching an intraday high at $192.79 and also a fresh all-time high.

In the week ended on October 8th the shares of the PC tech company added 1.42% to their market value compared to a week ago, which marked the first gain out of three weeks.

The hardware will ensure greater range and drive time for the self-driving vehicles.
