Nvidia Corporation (NVDA) Q1 FY15 Financial Results are Out – Beats Expectation by 12 Cents, General Growth Despite Bearish PC Market attributed to GPU Sales
Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA 158.01 -0.92%) has seen some impressive sales figures in all its departments this quarter but none of them come close to the sales of the GPUs which account for 81% of the entire Revenue this quarter. However even though GTX sales saw an increase of 14% Y/Y they went down 4% sequentially. On the other hand the Tegra SoC Division accounted for 12.6% of revenue and grew 6% sequentially and 35% yearly, which is very decent growth. The reason for the same is attributed to the increased demand from the automotive industry (+60% Y/Y) and smartphone Industry (partial decline). GRID Computing and Tesla Sales remained strong due to VDI Deployments and an assortment of streaming gaming providers. However the fact remains that both the Tegra and GPU Division accounted for 93.6% of the entire revenue of the business. The increased demand for Maxwell (28m) i.e. the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti is attributed to the sales while the notebook sector saw a slight decline in demand. Here is the financial summary of the quarterly:
