NVIDIA: results and prospects
In addition to the posted financial results of NVIDIA, I’d like to state some values and facts, announced at the quarterly press conference.
According to CEO and president Jen-Hsun Huang, NV30 volume shipments are scheduled to January 2003. Though company representatives say NV30 will appear in the market before X-mas in limited quantities.
According to chief scientist David Kirk, NV30 will be announced at NVIDIA Mania Day on November 18 at Comdex in Las Vegas.
The press conference hasn´t confirmed the possibility of producing chips at IBM facilities, but confirmed that NVIDIA is to partner with TSMC. It’s interesting the latter ties recent 19.4% revenue growth in October directly to increased orders from NVIDIA.
NVIDIA is satisfied with TSMC´s 0.13-micron chip yield. NV3X family development will cost the company about $400 million.
Fresh market analysis of Mercury Research indicate that in Q3 2002 NVIDIA increased its market presence from 56% of Q2 to 58%. At that ATI presence on the GPU market reduced from 36% to 33% despite sales of new high-performance chips.
Despite Q3 losses NVIDIA is generally satisfied: for nine months of 2002 the company earned $1.44 billion, that’s 66% more than $865.8, earned for the first nine months of 2001. For nine months of 2003 the profit made $39.9 million or $0.24 per share.
