GSI Technology (GSIT) sparked meme-like buzz earlier this year, attracting attention from users posting on Reddit. Founded in 1995, GSI Technology designs and develops memory products for the telecommunications and networking industries. The company describes itself as a leading provider of static random-access memory, or SRAM, semiconductor products. But it's GSI Technology's efforts around AI-processor technology that have been attracting attention.

Last week, GSI Technology announced design completion of its Gemini-II processor, which it is aiming at the artificial-intelligence market. The company is eyeing opportunities for the Gemini-II processor in AI applications and the aerospace market, touting the technology as a good fit for drones, satellites and aircraft.

In a statement released last week, GSI Technology said that Gemini-II will bring significant performance enhancements over its predecessor, Gemini-I, with more than 10 times the processing performance and eight times the memory density.

The company told MarketWatch that its 16-nanometer Gemini-II chip will be generally available in 2024.

While companies like Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), Palantir Technologies Inc. (PLTR) and Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) have cemented themselves as AI players in the eyes of Wall Street, investors have also been watching lesser-known AI-related companies this year.

Set against this backdrop, GSI Technology shares are up 38.4% in 2023, outpacing the S&P 500's SPX gain of 9.3%.
