For the fourth quarter of 2020, revenue is expected to be $2.95 billion, plus or minus 2%. The company expects to see strong sequential revenue growth in Data Center, which is likely to be offset by a seasonal decline in GeForce notebook GPUs and SoC modules for gaming platforms.

NVIDIA will pay its next quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per share on December 20, 2019, to all shareholders of record on November 29, 2019.

NVIDIA stated that although it is possible to close the acquisition of Mellanox Technologies by the end of this calendar year, the company believes the closing is likely to occur in the early part of calendar 2020. The company will return to repurchasing its stock after the close of this acquisition.
