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.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
