It seems that NVIDIA Corporation is going from strength to strength as it presented final numbers for the fiscal fourth quarter, and fiscal financial year. Just like Apple, NVIDIA does not use Calendar Year (CY) for its earnings, unlike AMD, Intel, Qualcomm and the like. Their year ends with January 1st, and starts with February 1st. For the fourth fiscal quarter 2016, the company reported $1.40 billion, 12% more than the year before (YoY). Fiscal 2016 also marks the first time NVIDIA broke into the $5 billion club, with $5.01 billion in revenue. Revenue drive was not driven by buying the market share as the company reported healthy
When it was originally introduced, the 8″ SHIELD tablet represented the highest performing tablet on the market, packing Tegra K1 SoC with 192 Kepler cores, world’s first tablet with desktop-like GPU. We were quite impressed with the performance Tegra achieved by using stock Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, as well as overall built quality.

After stating that an LTE-enabled version of the Shield Tablet was in the works, Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is making good on its word by commencing pre-orders for the device. In addition to LTE connectivity, Nvidia is doubling internal storage to 32 GB. The pre-order price of the gaming-focused tablet is at $399 in the US, which is $100 more than what the Wi-Fi only version retails for in the country. Nvidia mentions that the Shield Tablet LTE is fully certified to run on AT&T’s data network, and is incentivising the tablet to AT&T customers by offering a $100 credit to all users activating the tablet on
Nvidia has been doing a lot of their own consumer products lately, with the original Shield handheld gaming console and the Tegra Note 7 tablet. Each of these devices was actually surprisingly good and they were very good values for the money, especially if you got them at their cheapest ($199 each). Nvidia has learned a lot of lessons from each device and they’ve done a fantastic job of updating both the Shield and the Tegra Note 7. Their updates are so frequent and regular that I almost feel like they’ve got the leg up on almost every other Android manufacturer out there. They are
