Nvidia said that its strong results come from strong demand for its Pascal graphics cards, as well as "surging interest in deep learning." Within just this one quarter, the company introduced the GeForce GTX 1080, the GTX 1070, the GTX 1060, and the Pascal-powered Titan X. The company also took Pascal to graphics professionals with the Quadro P6000 and made waves in the data center with its Tesla P100 compute card.
For its next quarter, Nvidia expects revenue of $1.68 billion, plus or minus two percent, and it expects GAAP gross margin of 57.8%.
