Nvidia shares have skyrocketed this year, up more than 175% since the start of 2023. It's all thanks to the rise of generative AI. Really powerful chips called graphics processing units (GPUs) are needed to power these new AI systems. These are the kinds of GPUs Nvidia makes. Despite it's rise, Nvidia does have its detractors.

Former members of the club include Meta (META) and Tesla (TSLA), which now have market caps of $600 billion+. Yahoo Finance's Brad Smith tells Seana Smith and Akiko Fujita how it took Nvidia about 24 years to become a $1 trillion company and how that compares to other members' rise.
