NVIDIA's data center revenue saw nearly double the revenue in Q1 2017 up to $409 million, beating analysts' expectations of $318.2 million, according to FactSet. Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress said: "All of the world's major internet and cloud service providers now use NVIDIA's Tesla-based GPU (graphics processing unit) accelerators".

Total revenue jumped from $1.31 billion to $1.94 billion, beating analysts' expectations of $1.91 billion. NVIDIA's gaming division rose a huge 50% to $1.03 billion, which accounted for 53% of NVIDIA's total revenue for Q1 2017 - but didn't quite reach analysts' expectations of $1.11 billion.
