Nvidia reports strong Q2 earnings

Written by Nermin Hajdarbegovic


Tegra business remains flat despite the hype
Nvidia posted its Q2 figures and the numbers looks pretty promising despite the seasonal downturn in desktop GPU shipments and a weaker than expected showing in the Tegra market.

The company reported $151.6 million earnings, or 25 cents a share, while non-GAAP net income was $193.5 million, with 32 cents per share and revenue of $1.02 billion. The figures are largely in line with Wall Street’s expectations, but Nvidia shares dipped Friday despite the positive report. Console royalties and Intel licensing revenues made up a significant chunk of Nvidia's Q2 earnings, but both of these revenue sources will dwindle in the future.

Analysts see less than impressive figures in the Tegra business as a reason for concern in the long run. Although Nvidia is touting Tegra as the next big thing in its product portfolio, sales are still low relative to other market segments and growth has been slow for months.

"Investors just assumed the product was going to ramp of its own accord. In fact, Nvidia is really beholden to its (manufacturing) customers," said MKM Partners analyst Daniel Berenbaum. Berenbaum pinned the blame on the management, saying that Tegra ramp plans did not appear realistic.

In spite of Tegra issues, Nvidia remains upbeat and the company hopes to post stronger results in Q3, with revenue in the $1.06 and $1.08 billion range.

All the hype Fudo is generating for Tegra will not help to get over the fact that Tegra is a turd. Not delivering the promises nVidia is making especially in terms of its power envelope. Where the competition can deliver in specs

I must agree. Tegra was over-hyped seriously by Nvidia. It is slow (I have used several T2 devices, all lag far behind Apple phones/pads), hot, and power hungry.

Tegra 3 (Kal El) is being made on 40nm, while everyone else is going straight for 28nm. What a failure.

Huang has to go.

I couldn't agree more with you Dan, nVidia's choice to use 40nm to create a Quad Core mobile processor is terrible. Heck, my single core galaxy S struggles to stay the whole day without a charge, let alone a Quad Core manufactured on an outdated manufacturing process. nVidia as always, hot, slow, expensive and unmanufacturabl e

They'll do it. Having the strongest single card GPU in the market will do that. nVidia while some of the lower GPU's might not be able to out right beat AMD, going toe to toe helped.
