Analysts Says Nvidia Will See Increased Revenue This Quarter Despite Crypto Mining Decline

A survey conducted by FactSet recommend that Nvidia will see expanded income this quarter in spite of “waning” cryptocurrency mining, Marketwatch reported August 10. The indicated increase is because of strong interest for gaming devices and data centers.

Even though analyst recommends that the company’s income from crypto mining hardware will decrease, the U.S.- based graphics processing units (GPU) manufacturer will see a huge development in its gaming and servers sales. Income from Nvidia’s gaming segment is anticipating to develop by 47 percent to $1.75 billion on a year-on-year premise early basis while data center income is required to surge 78 percent to $740 million.

An analyst at Evercore, C.J Muse agrees with different experts, saying that “data Center/AI remains an area of strength, particularly when considering additional benefit of a new gaming cycle favoring Nvidia.” Muse included:

“We believe concerns around a likely falloff from cryptocurrency-driven Ethereum GPU mining strength are largely exaggerated, and Nvidia will likely power through any tough compares from cryptocurrency-driven tailwinds.”

Nvidia reported in may that it produced $289 million from processor sales to the crypto market. Nvidia’s first-quarter crypto sales added up to more than 9 percent of overall income for the organization, which remained at $3.2 billion.

Chips for crypto mining made up 76 percent of (Original Equipment Manufacturer) OEM income, which was up 115 percent from the past quarter. However, Nvidia proposed that deals to the crypto market will probably decrease by 66% in the second quarter.

In July, the company estimates were demonstrated as the price of specific GPUs declined alongside sinking prices in digital currency markets. Nvidia’s rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) revealed in April that 10 percent of the organization’s income during the quarter was ascribed to blockchain or mining, however, the organization’s CEO Lisa Su said that blockchain was “a bit of a distraction in the short term.”

The mining hardware price has not discouraged manufacturers from creating new crypto mining hardware. In May, ASUS reported the launch of its “second generation” cryptocurrency mining motherboard, which was planned to be in North America toward the start of the second from last quarter of 2018.
