Chips stocks aren’t doing so hot on Thursday after the U.S. reportedly introduced new bans on sales to China and Russia.

This ban keeps chipmakers from selling certain types of products to China and Russia. Why? The idea here is that types of chips included in the ban could be used by the militaries of those countries. The U.S. doesn’t want that to happen.

Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) spoke about the matter in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The chipmaker warns that this ban will result in it losing $400 million in sales to China in its current quarter. The company also says it has no customers in Russia affected by this ban.

News of the ban is causing several chip stocks to take a beating on Thursday. Let’s take a look at how bad the damage is below.
