Leading designer of graphics chips Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) will be reporting results tomorrow afternoon. Here's what to expect.
Last quarter Nvidia reported revenues of $13.51 billion, up 101% year on year, beating analyst revenue expectations by 21.9%. It was an incredible quarter for the company, with beats across nearly every key metric. We were particularly impressed by its revenue beat, driven by strong performance in the data center segment which houses the company's AI chips division. Furthermore, we were encouraged by Nvidia's revenue guidance for next quarter, which blew past analysts' expectations.
