Nvidia said on Wednesday that it’s been told by the U.S. government to stop selling chips in China and Russia. The company said it was applying for a license to continue some Chinese exports but doesn’t know whether the U.S. government will grant an exemption. Nvidia shares fell 6.5% in extended trading on Wednesday after the company said the U.S. government is restricting sales in China.
In a filing with the SEC, Nvidia said the U.S. government told the company on Aug. 26, about a new license requirement for future exports to China, including Hong Kong, to reduce the risk that the products may be used by the Chinese military.
