FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA—JULY 2, 2008—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the world
leader in visual computing technologies, today provided a business update for
its second quarter ending July 27, 2008.
Second quarter revenue and gross margin are expected to be lower than guidance
provided during its first quarter financial conference call held May 8, 2008.
Total revenue is now estimated to be from $875 million to $950 million. The
estimated decrease in revenue and gross margin is due to several reasons:
end-market weakness around the world, the delayed ramp of a next generation MCP,
and price adjustments of our GPU products to respond to competitive products.
Separately, NVIDIA plans to take a one-time charge from $150 million to $200
million against cost of revenue for the second quarter to cover anticipated
warranty, repair, return, replacement and other costs and expenses, arising
from a weak die/packaging material set in certain versions of its previous
generation GPU and MCP products used in notebook systems. Certain notebook
configurations with GPUs and MCPs manufactured with a certain die/packaging
material set are failing in the field at higher than normal rates. To date,
abnormal failure rates with systems other than certain notebook systems have
not been seen. NVIDIA has initiated discussions with its supply chain regarding
this material set issue and the Company will also seek to access insurance
coverage for this matter.
Regarding the notebook field failures, NVIDIA president and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang
"Although the failure appears related to the combination of the interaction
between the chip material set and system design, we have a responsibility to
our customers and will take our part in resolving this problem. The GPU has
become an increasingly important part of the computing experience and we are
seeing more interest by PC OEMs to adopt GPUs in more platforms. Recognizing
that the GPU is one of the most complex processors in the system, it is
critical that we now work more closely with notebook system designers and our
chip foundries to ensure that the GPU and the system are designed
collaboratively for the best performance and robustness."
Today's high performance notebooks are highly complex systems with extreme
thermal environments. The combination of limited thermal management and
frequent power cycling is particularly challenging for complex processors like
Huang added, "This has been a challenging experience for us. However, the
lessons we've learned will help us build far more robust products in the future,
and become a more valuable system design partner to our customers. As for the
present, we have switched production to a more robust die/package material set
and are working proactively with our OEM partners to develop system management
software that will provide better thermal management to the GPU."
For more information about the one-time charge for notebook field failures,
please refer to NVIDIA's current report on Form 8-K dated July 2, 2008 filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
No conference call will be held in conjunction with this business update.
Additional commentary pertaining to the second quarter and the notebook field
failures will be available when NVIDIA reports its second quarter financial
results on August 12, 2008
