Nvidia lowers revenue forecast for fourth quarter

Company's revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 will decline 40 percent to 50 percent from the third quarter, Nvidia said.

Nvidia this week lowered its fourth-quarter revenue forecast, citing weakness in demand for its products and inventory reductions by channel partners.

The company's revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 will decline 40 percent to 50 percent from the third quarter, Nvidia said in a statement. Nvidia reported third-quarter revenue of US$897.7 million, which could bring revenue for the fourth quarter between $449 million and $538 million.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimated revenue of US$801.94 million for the fourth quarter.

The revision represents a significant drop in year-over-year revenue for Nvidia. For the fourth quarter of 2008, Nvidia reported a record revenue of US$1.20 billion.

Nvidia will report its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings on February 10.

Softening demand for a wide range of products including PCs and consumer electronics is taking a toll on chip companies, research firm Gartner said in December. A number of companies, including Intel and Advanced Micro Devices, have dropped revenue forecasts in recent months.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
