Tiger Woods Ends Era with Nike as AI Innovations Dominate CES 2024

By COINTURK NEWS | Cryptocurrency-News | 11 Jan 2024


In a major shift in sports marketing, Tiger Woods has ended his long-standing endorsement deal with Nike. This partnership, initiated when Woods turned professional in 1996, included a record-breaking $40 million agreement, ultimately netting Woods an estimated $660 million over nearly three decades. Despite signing their last deal in 2013, Nike stopped producing golf equipment in 2016 but continued in golf apparel. This cessation has opened avenues for Woods to explore new partnerships, with speculation about future collaborations with different brands.

Woods expressed gratitude for his time with Nike, a relationship that was mutually beneficial. As Nike withdrew from golf equipment production, Woods might seek opportunities with other apparel and equipment manufacturers, though no confirmations have yet been made.

Simultaneously, the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) highlighted significant advancements in AI technology. AMD and Nvidia, leading in AI chip innovation, unveiled new products. AMD challenged Nvidia's market dominance with its Instinct MI300X and MI300A processors and the Ryzen 8040 Series for desktops, emphasizing consumer AI enhancement. Nvidia countered with updated desktop AI chips, including the GeForce RTX 4080 Super and SUPER product lines, expanding AI integration into consumer technology. Intel's Core Ultra range, released last fall, is already featured in existing laptops.

Apple also made a notable entry into the high-end consumer electronics market by announcing the pre-order date for its $3,500 Apple Vision Pro headset, a significant step in wearable AI technology, with availability in stores and online slated for early February.
