NVIDIA recently reported their quarterly revenue, which was “$3.21 billion for the three-month period that ended March 31st, 2018”. According to VentureBeat, this is “up 66% year-over-year from $1.94 billion”. The company had loads of success, and NVIDIA chief executive officer Jensen Huang explained why. Multiple things contributed to NVIDIA’s good fortunes, including the Nintendo Switch.
Huang said that “we had a strong quarter with growth across every platform. Gaming GPU growth was fueled by demand for the best experience while playing esports, momentum of the battle royale genre, and triple-A cinematic games. Tegra Processor business revenue — which includes SOC modules for the Nintendo Switch gaming console — was $442 million, up 33 percent from a year ago and down 2 percent sequentially.”
