|The last three months of fiscal year 2008, which ended on January 27th (2008) have seen Nvidia reach new heights with revenues reaching $1.20 billion, up 37% over the same period last year.
GAAP net income in Q4 also went up, this time by 57% on-year and topped $257.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. For the full fiscal year 2008 Nvidia has reported a revenue of $4.10 billion, up 34% compared to the $3.07 billion seen in the year before while GAAP net income stood at $797.6 million, up 78% on-year.
"Fiscal 2008 was another outstanding and record year for us. Strong demand for GPUs in all market segments drove our growth. Relative to Q4 one year ago, our discrete GPU business grew 80%. Our growth reflects the ever-increasing use of rich graphics in applications from Google Earth to Apple iTunes to online virtual worlds," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of Nvidia.
For the first quarter of FY 2009 Nvidia can already 'brag' with the acquisition of Ageia while hopefully it will also be able to say that it has released the GeForce 9600 GT, 9800 GX2, GeForce 8200, 9200, nForce 730a, 750a, 780a and 790i.
