SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today reported revenue for the second quarter ended July 31, 2022, of $6.70 billion, up 3% from a year ago and down 19% from the previous quarter.

NVIDIA’s outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 is as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be $5.90 billion, plus or minus 2%. Gaming and Professional Visualization revenue are expected to decline sequentially, as OEMs and channel partners reduce inventory levels to align with current levels of demand and prepare for NVIDIA’s new product generation. The company expects that decline to be partially offset by sequential growth in Data Center and Automotive.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be 62.4% and 65.0%, respectively, plus or minus 50 basis points.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $2.59 billion and $1.82 billion, respectively.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP other income and expense are expected to be an expense of approximately $10 million, excluding gains and losses from non-affiliated investments.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates are expected to be 9.5%, plus or minus 1%, excluding any discrete items.


NVIDIA achieved progress since its previous earnings announcement in these areas: 

Data Center


  • Second-quarter revenue was $2.04 billion, down 33% from a year ago and down 44% from the previous quarter.
  • Added 30 RTX ON games and apps — including A Plague Tale: Requiem, Evil Dead: The Game and F1 22 — bringing the total available to 280+. 
  • Increased the number of GeForce® RTX™ and NVIDIA Studio™ laptops to a record 180+, including introduction of the fastest-ever laptops with GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 2-in-1 convertible gaming laptops and a broad range of Studio laptops.
  • Expanded the GeForce NOW™ library with 80 additional games — including Genshin Impact, Evil Dead the Game, Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Loopmancer with RTX — bringing the total to over 1,350.

Professional Visualization

  • Second-quarter revenue was $496 million, down 4% from a year ago and down 20% from the previous quarter.
  • Expanded its partnership with Siemens to enable the industrial metaverse and increase use of AI-driven digital twin technology.
  • Announced Omniverse™ Avatar Cloud Engine, a suite of cloud-native AI models and services that make it easier to build and customize lifelike virtual assistants and digital humans.
  • Launched a broad initiative to evolve Universal Scene Description, the open-source and extensible language of 3D worlds, to become a foundation of the open metaverse.
  • Announced a major release of Omniverse with new frameworks, tools, apps and plugins, including 11 new connectors to the Omniverse USD ecosystem that bring the total to 112.
  • Co-founded the Metaverse Standards Forum to align with other members on the best ways to build the foundations of the metaverse.


  • Second-quarter revenue was $220 million, up 45% from a year ago and up 59% from the previous quarter.
  • Announced rollout plans of new model vehicles using the DRIVE Orin™ compute platform by partners NIO, Li Auto, JIDU, and Human Horizons, as well as Pony.ai’s use of DRIVE Orin across its line of self-driving trucks and robotaxis.

CFO Commentary
Commentary on the quarter by Colette Kress, NVIDIA’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, is available at https://investor.nvidia.com/.

Conference Call and Webcast Information
NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2023 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2 p.m. Pacific time (5 p.m. Eastern time). A live webcast (listen-only mode) of the conference call will be accessible at NVIDIA’s investor relations website, https://investor.nvidia.com. The webcast will be recorded and available for replay until NVIDIA’s conference call to discuss its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2023.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement NVIDIA’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP other income (expense), net, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income, or earnings, per diluted share, and free cash flow. For NVIDIA’s investors to be better able to compare its current results with those of previous periods, the company has shown a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations adjust the related GAAP financial measures to exclude acquisition termination costs, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related and other costs, contributions, IP-related costs, legal settlement costs, gains and losses from non-affiliated investments, interest expense related to amortization of debt discount, the associated tax impact of these items where applicable, domestication tax benefit, and foreign tax benefit. Free cash flow is calculated as GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less both purchases of property and equipment and intangible assets and principal payments on property and equipment and intangible assets. NVIDIA believes the presentation of its non-GAAP financial measures enhances the user’s overall understanding of the company’s historical financial performance. The presentation of the company’s non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the company’s non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Since its founding in 1993, NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) has been a pioneer in accelerated computing. The company’s invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined computer graphics and ignited the era of modern AI. NVIDIA is now a full-stack computing company with data-center-scale offerings that are reshaping industry. More information at https://nvidianews.nvidia.com/.
