Nvidia is hopeful about the upcoming year too, with the company betting on Virtual Reality increasing demand for graphics chips. Gaming isn't Nvidia's only focus, though, as company CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang said that deep learning and self-driving cars are also helping to drive demand for graphics chips. Right now, Nvidia is working with 70 companies in total on self-driving cars and believes that deep learning is going to be a “big killer app”, as VentureBeat reports.

Finally, Nvidia also listed what it feels were the biggest PC games of the holiday season, which included Fallout 4, Rainbow Six: Siege, Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars: Battlefront.

KitGuru Says:  PC gaming has been growing strong over the last couple of years and it looks like Virtual Reality is going to increase demand for high-performance chips.
