Yesterday, we already wrote about how Nvidia’s management came up with brutal expectations in its latest quick report. We already knew that the development of artificial intelligence will require huge computing capacity and therefore a lot of hardware, and semiconductor manufacturers such as Nvidia can benefit from this, and analysts have largely included this in their expectations, but with what the company management came out, it is very strong:
In the financial quarter that ends at the end of July, the revenue could be 11 billion dollars, while analysts had expected an average of 7.2 billion dollars. In other words, the company management announced a figure 53 percent higher than expected.
“We’re seeing incredible orders to transition data centers around the world,” CEO Jensen Huang told analysts on a conference call following the flash report. According to Huang, data center infrastructure will be upgraded to the tune of trillions of dollars to handle so-called accelerated computing, which will enable generative AI tools like ChatGPT to run.
The announcement by Nvidia’s management not only moved the company’s share price, but also that of hardware and software manufacturers, and even affected the leading American stock indexes. We show the stock market effects:
