Nvidia last night reported a record quarterly revenenue when it posted the results of Q4 FY2007. The quarter, which ended on 28 January, saw sales rise to $878.9m, up 39 per cent on the year-ago quarter and seven per cent on the previous three-month period.

Ignore GAAP rules, which force the inclusion of Nvidia's purchace of iPod chip maker PortalPlayer and other considerations, and the net income would hit $205.6m, with earnings per share of 53 cents.
