It was specially noted that the income received from the sale of products used mainly as a cryptocurrency miners was $ 70 million, which is twice less than the same figure for the previous quarter of this year ($150 million).
According to Nvidia Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress, this state of affairs occurred due to high volatility of cryptocurrency market. She also stressed that despite the great popularity of products for mining, the main niche of Nvidia is still the video game industry.
CEO and co-founder of Nvidia, Huang Jenxun, stated that there are other interesting development directions that have much more potential than mining - for example, unmanned vehicles, robotics and neural networks, which also require considerable computing resources. Perhaps, the scope of cryptocurrency segment will decrease significantly with time, but it is unlikely to disappear. Anyway, mining solutions will remain part of the company's interests," - he said.

That is, despite a slight decline in demand for video cards for mining, the company did not incur losses, and Nvidia's financial results even exceeded expectations.
