In a new email picked up by Business Insider, NVIDIA is sticking to its guns with NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang keeping the can of whoop ass closed when it comes to hurting NVIDIA staffers during these hard times. Jensen explained in the email: "So what does this [THE REVENUE DROP] mean for us? Do we have a layoff? No. Instead, we have given raises to take care of your families as all of you are facing sky-high inflation".

He continued: "We will exercise extreme collaboration, a hallmark of our culture, finding every opportunity to leverage and reuse. We will find and eliminate all wasted time, process, and material. Take this opportunity to make NVIDIA even faster, leaner, and agile. So let's turn our alertness and agility to maximum, engines full-throttle, and fly through the challenges ahead while continuing to do our impactful work".

As for the Q2 2022 earnings, NVIDIA revenues slipped big time with GeForce GPU sales down 44% quarter-over-quarter and 33% year-over-year. Jensen explained: "Our gaming product sell-through projections declined significantly as the quarter progressed, As we expect the macroeconomic conditions affecting sell-through to continue, we took actions with our Gaming partners to adjust channel prices and inventory".

Jensen continued, adding: "NVIDIA has excellent products and position driving large and growing markets. As we navigate these challenges, we remain focused on the once-in-a-generation opportunity to reinvent computing for the era of AI".
