Nvidia chief financial officer Colette Kress acknowledged that cryptocurrency mining contributed to the solid sales of graphics processing units (GPUs) during the company’s fourth fiscal quarter, which ended January 31.
“[It is] difficult to quantify, but cryptocurrency accounted for a higher percentage of revenue than the previous quarter,” Kress said in a call with analysts.
But she added that the company is cautious about projecting the future impact of such activity, as “cryptocurrency trends will likely remain volatile.”
Nvidia reported better-than-expected earnings for its fiscal Q4. The company said it earned non-GAAP revenues of $1.72 a share on revenues of $2.91 billion. Analysts had expected $1.16 a share on revenue of $2.68 billion.
