The report said the new curbs would also codify restrictions sent last month to Nvidia Corp. NVDA, -0.93% and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. AMD, -1.17% against shipping certain AI chips to China. Nvidia shares sank to a 52-week low after disclosing the restrictions. The broader restrictions could impact a number of other major tech companies, including Intel Corp. INTC, -0.38%, Dell Technologies Inc. DELL, -0.24% and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Co. HPE, 0.35%, according to the report.

Reuters also said other restrictions may be added.
