Posted on Thursday, Jul 03 2008 @ 16:36 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Shares of NVIDIA (NVDA) are down bigtime today as the company lowered its revenue forecast for the second quarter to between $875 million and $975 million while announcing a charge against the cost of revenue of as much as $200 million because of a defect in some laptop chipsets and GPUs as well.

The increased competition from AMD and the bad economic climate is taking its toll on NVIDIA, at press time shares of NVDA were down 29.67% compared to yesterday and more than 60% since the start of the year.
