"Fiscal 2007 was an outstanding year," stated Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "Our record year is a result of intense focus on building market-defining products and financial performance. We established the number one position in multiple categories - desktop GPUs, notebook GPUs, workstation GPUs, and AMD chipsets. Most importantly, we significantly enhanced our strategic position in the markets we serve."

"Looking ahead into fiscal 2008, we expect multiple growth drivers - driving deeper into the Intel segment with our branded motherboard GPUs, delivering our first application processor for the handheld market, and launching the ‘GPU Computing’ era with GPUs designed to dramatically accelerate high-performance computing. This is the year the industry ramps three very new applications that are enhanced with our GPUs - Vista, DX10, and HD/Blu-ray DVD. It is exciting that the GPU is becoming an increasingly central part of our computing experience," added Mr. Huang.
