NVIDIA updated its Q1 revenue estimate to $5.3 billion+ on account of “broad-based strength” across various end markets. One of the notable increases is expected to come from the CMP cryptomining processors which are now predicated to pull on 3x more than previously predicted: From $50 million to $150 million. Although the company continues to reiterate that the CMP lineup doesn’t affect the supply of gaming graphics cards, it’s important to note that both product stacks leverage the same silicon, with the top-end part being based on the same GPU die as the GeForce RTX 3080/3090 (GA102).
|Architecture||Turing (TU116)||Turing (TU106)||Turing (TU104)||Ampere (GA102)|
|Ethereum Hash Rate||26 MH/s||36 MH/s||45 MH/s||86 MH/s|
|Rated Power||125 W||185 W||250 W||320 W|
|Power Connectors||1x 8-pin||1x 8-pin||2x 8-pin||2x 8-pin|
While the lower-end 30HX and 40HX are based on the Turing dies, TU116, and TU106 which power the GTX 16 series parts, the 50HX uses the same GPU core as the RTX 2080/2070 class GPUs. On the top-end, we’re looking at the 90HX which is based on the GA102, in other words, an RTX 3080/3090 which are in extremely low demand.
Within Data Center we have good visibility, and we expect another strong year. Industries are increasingly using AI to improve their products and services. We expect this will lead to increased consumption of our platform through cloud service providers, resulting in more purchases as we go through the year. Our EGX platform has strong momentum, and we expect this will drive increased revenue from enterprise and edge computing deployments in the second half of the year.Colette Kress, Nvidia CFO
NVIDIA’s shares rose by 6% after the company announced its Arm-based Grace CPUs and its extended GPU roadmap, while Intel’s dropped by 5%. Although the end-consumers have been unable to get their hands on any gaming graphics cards, demand has remained strong with the company expected to see another record quarter.
