nVidia currently owns and dominates this market which they helped craft starting with Fermi. You can have hardware but without a software ecosystem it's meaningless. All the giant Cloud computing services designed for machine learning are using nVidia GPUs, mostly their Tesla T4: Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and Red Hat OpenShift 4. We'll see how Intel plans to take on an ecosystem which is stated to be the de facto standard for data-parallel computing.
