Micron (NASDAQ:MU) stock is rising higher on Monday after announcing the production of memory chips for Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA).

Micron notes that its High Bandwidth Memory 3E (HBM3E) solution will be used in Nvidia’s H200 Tensor Core GPUs that are set to start shipping in the second quarter of 2024. The company notes that this will see it providing technology that helps advance the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

One of the benefits that Nvidia gets from working with Micron is the efficiency of its memory chips. The company’s HBM3E solution consumes 30% less energy than competing products.

Sumit Sadana, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer at Micron, said the following about the news:

“Micron is delivering a trifecta with this HBM3E milestone: time-to-market leadership, best-in-class industry performance, and a differentiated power efficiency profile […] AI workloads are heavily reliant on memory bandwidth and capacity, and Micron is very well-positioned to support the significant AI growth ahead through our industry-leading HBM3E and HBM4 roadmap, as well as our full portfolio of DRAM and NAND solutions for AI applications.”
