SANTA CLARA, CA – August 8, 2022 Pacific Time – NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA ) announced portions of its preliminary financial results for the second quarter ended July 31, 2022.
Second-quarter revenue is expected to be approximately $6.70 billion, down 19% quarter-over-quarter and up 3% year-over-year, primarily reflecting lower-than-expected gaming revenue. Game revenue was $2.04 billion, down 44% from the previous quarter and down 33% from the same period last year. Data center revenue was $3.81 billion, up 1% sequentially and 61% year-over-year.
The revenue miss of May’s $8.10 billion revenue forecast was primarily due to lower shipments of gaming products, reflecting possible reductions in channel partner sales due to macroeconomic headwinds. In addition to reducing shipments, the company has implemented pricing plans with channel partners to reflect challenging market conditions that are expected to continue into the third quarter.
Data center revenue, while record, fell slightly below the company’s expectations due to disruptions in the supply chain.
Based on revised future demand expectations, second-quarter results are expected to include charges of approximately $1.32 billion, primarily for inventory and related reserves.

“Significant charges were incurred in the quarter, reflecting our previous long-term procurement commitments during a period of severe component shortages and current expectations of continued macroeconomic uncertainty,” said Colette Kress, NVIDIA executive vice president and chief financial officer.
Colette Kress said: “We believe the long-term gross profit position is intact. We have moderated the pace of growth in operating expenses, balancing investments in long-term growth while managing near-term margins.
