  • Revenue is expected to be $2.95 billion, plus or minus 2 percent. Strong sequential growth is expected in the Data Center, offset by a seasonal decline in GeForce® notebook GPUs and SoC modules for gaming platforms.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be 64.1 percent and 64.5 percent, respectively, plus or minus 50 basis points.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $1.02 billion and $805 million, respectively.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP other income and expense are both expected to be the income of approximately $25 million.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates are both expected to be 9 percent, plus or minus 1 percent, excluding any discrete items.  GAAP discrete items include excess tax benefits or deficiencies related to stock-based compensation, which are expected to generate variability on a quarter by quarter basis.

In Q3 specifically, NVIDIA's gaming business launched several products, including the GeForce RTX SUPER series which offered better performance than the original RTX cards at the same price point to consumers. NVIDIA also very recently announced their mainstream GeForce GTX 16 SUPER line which is also expected to become a popular hit amongst the mainstream masses.
