Nvidia shares rose more than three percent on Tuesday. The computer chip maker thus overtakes technology giant Microsoft as the world's most valuable company as measured by market capitalization.

Nvidia's market value now stands at about $3.330 billion, followed by Microsoft at about $3.320 billion. Behind these two comes Apple, with a market value of about $3.280 billion.

Bloomberg first reported the news.
