At least now PC enthusiasts who pay outrageous prices for Nvidia high end GPU cards know where the money goes and what huge profits are made on these over-priced products.

PC enthusiasts have known where their money is going long before this titbit of information.

In related news- Jorge, get a life.

"Grew GeForce GTX GPU revenue nearly 50 percent over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013."

That's impressive. I'm curious to see AMD's financial report though, interested in seeing how much this whole mining thing affected it.

Grew GeForce GTX GPU revenue nearly 50 percent over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.
That's a really interesting bullet point. If we say that in 2012 the high end was in the 500-600$ range and this year it was in the 800-900s on average, that means that even tho the price increased 45-50%, the amount of GTX GPUs sold was either the same as the previous year or in fact even higher. :twitch:

That's what I call a dedicated fan base...

That's what I call faulty reasoning.
How can the average be $800-900 ???
Only two Nvidia GTX branded products sit beyond $800 ( GTX Titan and GTX 690)...and they certainly don't make anything like the retail price as revenue per card. You're telling me that Nvidia sell so many Titans and 690's that it weights the average high enough that the both these cards must outsell the combined numbers of GTX 650/650Ti (~$90 - $130), GTX 660 (~$190), GTX 760 (~$230-270), GTX 770 (~$320), GTX 780 (~$500), GTX 780 Ti (~$700) , and various mobile GTX cards within the same range ? That's a shitload of Titans.

FWIW, You can't extrapolate much information from the 50% growth of "GeForce GTX" bullet point without corroborating numbers. It is expected that Nvidia's discrete desktop market share should move to 65% of the market (slight increase from 64.5% in Q3), but mobile add-in are tipped to be the big winners (66% market share), so the revenue increase is likely due more to increased sales than higher ASPs.

There is no numbers given to break down the GPU segment.

There is something interesting in the SEC filing...
Credit from a weak die/packaging material set (B) (7,782)
(B) Release of the remaining warranty reserve related to a weak die/packaging material set, as of January 26, 2014.
Curious to know what can cause an almost 8million dollar mistake. Anyone been fired lately ?

It's probably the remainder of their fund to deal with solder issues from around 2007-2008. It's only a tiny fraction of what that mistake actually cost.

Shouldn't think so. The charge is probably the amortised expense from the G84/G86 based MCP/GPU underfill write-down. Warranty replacements and repairs of affected components. $7.7m would indicate that the affected parts warranty period is running out. AFAIK the last eutectic solder parts still covered by warranty are extended warranty products- and most of those are split between Apple and Nvidia

EDIT: As The Von Matrices has said ( I think the total charge was ~$475m)

Guess Apple will be the first one to talk to eco friendly aliens.... for now o_O
Well at least they haven't got to the stage of selling their existing real estate and then renting it back from the new owners! ;)

I think that comment will come back to haunt you in couple of years. Nvidia is not in the same position it once enjoyed.

I feel Nvidia is going to get some serious competition from the HPC side, including the Mobile. The Desktop is safe for now.

I doubt it. I'm commenting on the current situation, not making any predictions.
If I were in the prediction business, I might look at the on-going stock buyback initiative and deduce that if there is any change, it points to Nvidia strengthening its valuation for the possibility of merger/acquisition on more favourable terms. I'd sincerely doubt the company would divest itself of assets and show weakness to potential suitors...especially whilst it has cash reserves.
Nvidia is not in the same position it once enjoyed.
Very few of the traditional x86 computing companies are. People have been forecasting doom for Nvidia since before they launched the NV1....so nothing new there.
