Nvidia is actively negotiating a data centre deal with Malaysian conglomerate YTL, as the giant tech company seeks to expand its business in Southeast Asia.

According to Reuters sources, the potential collaboration, centred around YTL’s data centre complex in the southern Malaysian state of Johor, would focus on cloud infrastructure, providing businesses in Southeast Asia with access to Nvidia’s AI chips through cloud computing.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, who visited Malaysia, refrained from directly commenting on the potential deal but expressed interest in partnering with YTL due to its significance in Southeast Asia’s computing infrastructure.

YTL, which previously entered into a partnership with Nvidia with its cloud gaming platform, GeForce Now, also didn’t respond to this news.

Nvidia views Southeast Asia as a growing technology hub and is considering artificial intelligence (AI) infrastructure projects in Singapore or Malaysia, with plans to potentially announce significant investments in Singapore.

In the quarter ending in October, about USD2.7 billion (~RM12.5 billion) of Nvidia’s revenues, or 15%, came from Singapore, reflecting a 401% increase from the same period last year. Huang also disclosed that Nvidia is collaborating with 80 startups in Malaysia.
