Here's an extended version of our interview with Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia, the leading maker of graphics chips for gamers.
Video games and their demand for better graphics has made Jen-Hsun Huang's Nvidia into one of the hottest chip companies. But Huang doesn't fare so well when he is playing video games with his 16-year-old son and his 15-year-old daughter. They have an unfair advantage because they can invest more time in Counter-Strike Source than he can. But Huang says the game that he likes the most is called "Nvidia.'' Huang sat down with me to discuss the impact he sees the graphics chip having in future technologies. (photo credit: Len Lehman)
What are some things to know about you?
My priorities are my family and my company and that's it. My perfect day is spending time with just my family, deciding what to cook for dinner, going grocery shopping, cooking dinner and opening a bottle of wine. My daughter goes downstairs and picks out a bottle of wine. She has wonderful taste. We all cook dinner and eat in front of a movie. I'm incredibly proud of my kids. I'm glad they are wonderful people and I'm glad they can do something -- as black belts -- beyond anything I've been able to do. They can be so good at their karate. The most important thing to know about a CEO is you can't be successful unless your family and in particular your wife wants you to be successful.
