The results of NVIDIA is better than expected

NVIDIA has released its results for its second quarter fiscal 2012 ended July 31. It displays a turnover of 1.02 billion dollars (approx. 720 million euros), representing an increase of 5.7% over the previous quarter and an increase of 25.3% compared to the same period last year. These results were better than expected, mainly due to strong sales of Tegra chips.

Markets have driven up the action of the manufacturer of 11%. The profits of the company operating at 193.5 million dollars (about 136.5 million euros). The next quarter looks just as positive with an increase of between 4% and 6% of sales. Manufacturer's performance is particularly good while the overall trend is downward and the last three months were hard for the market of the semiconductor (see "The semiconductor market is down").

The decline in demand and the impact of the tsunami have greatly weakened the Japanese movements growth in recent quarters (see "154 million square meters of wafers shipped in Q2"). This is a problem also seen in the report of NVIDIA. GPU sales have stagnated for computers from one quarter to another, despite a gain of units in the notebook market.

NVIDIA has also had to face the fact that it no longer provides chips for Apple machines. NVIDIA figures are largely drawn up by the Tegra chip sales which rose 36.8% from one quarter to another. He also received a significant amount, but indefinite, from Intel in response to an amicable agreement totaling $ 1.5 billion.
