AI Chip Dominance Soars

Optimistic Q2 Revenue Forecast: $11B

Looking ahead, Nvidia provided an optimistic forecast for the second quarter, with expected revenue of around $11 billion, plus or minus 2%. This projection exceeds the Refinitiv estimate of $7.15 billion. The growing popularity of artificial intelligence has fueled the demand for Nvidia’s chips. This demand is particularly prominent in big data centers. As a result, the company is positioned for continued growth and success.

Nvidia’s Market Value Jumps
