Nvidia has done it again. The company just revealed all-time record quarterly revenue of $22.1 billion in its latest earnings release, representing a stratospheric 265% growth over the previous year.

Shares skyrocketed on the news as Nvidia continued to fire on all cylinders across data centres, gaming, professional visualization, and automotive. Its success signals a changing of the guard, with AI and accelerated computing replacing legacy technologies to drive the next decade of innovation.

“Nvidia sits at the epicentre of generative AI and the enterprise metaverse, areas exploding in popularity,” comments Tobi Opeyemi Amure, a financial analyst at Trading.Biz. “Their ecosystem and full-stack approach strategically position them as the semiconductor leader of the future.”

Key takeaways from its Q4 earnings report

  • Nvidia Q4 revenue leapt 22% quarter-over-quarter to a record $22.1 billion
  • Data Center sales hit an all-time high of $18.4 billion, up 27%
  • Gaming revenue grew 56% year-over-year to $2.9 billion

Driving this growth is Nvidia’s pioneering work to vertically integrate its hardware, software stacks, and developer community. This creates strong competitive barriers across verticals like conversational AI, cloud gaming, autonomous vehicles, and omniverse simulation.

Additional tailwinds:

  • Mass adoption of large AI language models for training and inference
  • The proliferation of metaverse worlds, digital twins and clouded gaming
  • Evolution of autonomous driving, robotics, and edge AI

Mind-boggling milestones

Nvidia’s sensational numbers confirm its dominance across multiple multibillion-dollar categories. A few highlights from its record fiscal year:

  • Overall revenue grew 126% to $60.9 billion
  • Data Center sales doubled to reach $47.5 billion
  • Gaming revenue hit $10.4 billion, up 15%
  • GAAP earnings per share rocketed 586% to $11.93

With trillion-dollar secular trends accelerating worldwide, Nvidia looks poised to continue benefiting from immense demand spanning consumer to enterprise. Its platform model also confers pricing power to maintain sky-high 80%+ gross margins.
