    NVIDIA Announces Q4 and Fiscal 2018 ResultsYechpowerup.com
    NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA)
    today reported record revenue for the fourth quarter ended January 28, 2018, of $2.91 billion, up 34 percent from $2.17 billion a year earlier, and up 10 percent from $2.64 billion in the previous quarter. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were a record $1.78, up 80 percent from $0.99 a year ago and up 34 percent from $1.33 in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $1.72, also a record, up 52 percent from $1.13 a year earlier and up 29 percent from $1.33 in the previous quarter.

    For fiscal 2018, revenue was a record $9.71 billion, up 41 percent from $6.91 billion a year earlier. GAAP earnings per diluted share were a record $4.82, up 88 percent from $2.57 a year earlier. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $4.92, also a record, up 61 percent from $3.06 a year earlier. "We achieved another record quarter, capping an excellent year," said Jensen Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. "In a powerful sign of our progress, attendees at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conferences reached 22,000, up tenfold in five years, as software developers working in AI, self-driving cars, and a broad range of other fields continued to discover the acceleration and money-saving benefits of our GPU computing platform.

    RUMOR: NVIDIA Ampere GA104 GPU Powering ‘GeForce GTX 2080’ and ‘GeForce GTX 2070’ Launching In April, Mass Production Has Begun And GP102 is EOL
    It has begun folks. The leak season for NVIDIA’s upcoming Ampere architecture is officially open for business. Fresh from 3DCenter, a rumor which states that the next generation lineup for NVIDIA will be based not on Volta, but on the Ampere micro-architecture. Not only that, but if the rumor is to be believed then GP102 has already been transitioned to EOL (End of Life) and will be replaced with the GA series soon.

    All the cryptominers are likely rejoicing...

    Maybe the cryptominers will forgo buying further Pascal or Vega / Polaris GPU's now, and save their imaginary coins for spending on Ampere?

    We can only hope that those greedy bastards buying up all the GPU's will stop ruining gaming and will move off to some other time wasting futile pursuits, like summoning Leprechaun's to take them to their imaginary pots of gold.

    You're a greedy bastard if you have more than 1 GPU per computer burning valuable natural resources for the futile pursuit of spinning gold.

    If you only have 1 GPU / CPU per computer enlisted in the pursuit of making something into nothing, that's just sad, where's your commitment to becoming a greedy bastard?? Stop wasting electricity and play some games!! :D

    Only hope is if the crypto values sink as a stone. But the problem is for desktops. Not for coming laptops. If we shall trust Nvidia...:eek: Aka They don't overcharge due the miners.

    You'd think people would be smart enough to not use their expensive laptops for wasting resources on accumulating crypto-currency, but people are more foolish than you can imagine.

    There are indeed thousands of suckers burning up their laptops on that crap. I've run into them years ago, running banks of them - during the CPU mining era.

    These days I hear people mention they are going to pay off their new expensive laptop by mining 24/7, what a waste. They are forgoing the enjoyment of their new gaming laptop's, so they can earn some imaginary coins - to pay off their laptop.

    Just enjoy your laptop's folks, it's a sad waste to burn them up on nothing.

    I will say that $9.71 billion revenue recorded is not from consumers GPU's market, this company is working with giant entities like NASA/SpaceX and Automobile industry and many others, leading the AI, Deep Learning and Machine learning all over the world. Consumers GPU industry is important, but it is not the one behind those bilions.

    At a recent Interview, Jensen says very clearly that 3D gaming is the core engine of all that innovation, and still drives the invention and creation of faster and more efficient 3D computing, gaming provides the instant support and return on investment that let's Nvidia branch out into other fields, that may generate $B's, but don't contribute to the core engine that drives Nvidia...listen starting at 22:00 the first listen, then back up to the question stated and his full response starting at 20:01...

    The Future of Autonomous Vehicles | Nvidia CEO Full Interview


    If we gamers can't get reasonably priced GPU's, back to the MSRP, mining isn't just going to kill gaming, it's going to kill the core engine of innovation at Nvidia.

    Nvidia needs to figure out a simple solution to save their core business from disappearing. Use their Evil Empire firmware locking skillz to thwart miner's taking gamer's GPU's!!!!

    Make GPU's for gamers that run at a 2x loss on mining - 2x as slow and 2x more electricity used when it detects mining.

    Hell, make it 100x worse if you have to, to keep the miners away.

    Crypto-developers might finally figure out that those crypto puzzles are a worthless burning of resources and come up with a coin that doesn't use them, and only needs 1/100 the time or power to accomplish the core needs. The new gamer GPU's need to detect this and stop them the same as the current crypto coin resource hogs.

    Make a ton of these Gaming GPU's so that gamers never have to want for a fairly priced GPU. Fill the shelves with Gaming GPU's and never let them go out of stock. Get so many built that the price drops to below MSRP quickly after new GPU technology is released so that those in need can afford gaming, even if on last generation GPU technology.

    The GPU's that allow mining would be exactly like the gaming GPU's. In fact they could be used for gaming the same as the gaming GPU's after the miner comes to their senses and needs to sell them. But, only these GPU's have what it takes to allow mining.

    Mining capable GPU's would sell for 2x MSRP at a minimum, so that no gamer would mistakenly buy them, and Nvidia should only make enough of them each year to match the growth of Green Energy Resources so that miners can't continue to suck the oil / coal / gas out of the ground.

    Design the mining GPU's to keep track of hours run, power burned, and make miners license and register them to a specific person that will be responsible in the future to pay back their resource wastage.

    Also, the GPU should "pop up a big red flag" that shows it's spent when it comes to the engineered mining EOL, so that unsuspecting buyers won't get stuck with burned out GPU's. Maybe have a red die pack built in that goes off when it hits EOL. :)

    If you think these suggestions are too extreme, you haven't been paying attention to the vast waste of human and natural resources used building cryptocurrencies infrastructure over the last ~20 years.

    If miners are too greedy to stop on their own common sense, and are willing to pay as much as they have been for their lunacy, then give them what they want so they stay away from our gaming GPU's!!

    Yeah, well ASIC's mining is it's own punishment :)

    There should be state and federal laws enacted to require registration and licensing of GPU and ASIC mining devices, and special Electricity Billing Tiers for them to pay natural resource "wastage" charges.

    The electric company should be able to detect these power wasters easily, register them and their mining operations, and then charge them 10x for their power usage over what's normal usage, 20x during peak usage time.
