Nvidia is dominating the GPU market

Nvidia GTX 980

Nvidia recently released its results for the three months between November 2014 and January 2015 – and they are dominating.

Due to an increase in demand for its new Maxwell graphics cards, the company’s revenue was up 9% to R14.6 billion ($1.25 billion), with a net income of R2.26 billion ($193 million).

In comparison, AMD’s last quarter was more troubled – a 13% drop in revenue to R14.5 billion ($1.24 billion), with a net loss of R4.26 billion ($364 million) – ouch.

Which card helped make this happen for Nvidia? The GeForce GTX 980, of course.

Nvidia released the GTX 980, GTX 970, and GTX 960 desktop graphics cards in recent months, along with mobile versions of the 980 and 970.

The company said it made 38% more money on its GeForce GPUs this quarter, helping profits to climb to R2.2 billion ($193 million).

For the full year, Nvidia made R7.3 billion ($630 million) in profit. That’s enough to buy at least two high-end gaming PCs and a few games. (Just kidding).

“Momentum is accelerating in each of our market-specialized platforms, driving record revenue in the quarter and full year,” said Nvidia.

Here are some of the cards that helped rake in the cash for Nvidia.
