Hello, I'm the author of this news post.

I used the term "apparently" to avoid any unintentional error. While I confirmed it with an industry analyst that Tegra revenue numbers did increase thanks to Switch sales, just wanted to make sure any trolls didn't have firepower since most people on this website (and others) love to only read headlines and never actually view the full stories.

Old writer here. I suggest using more assertive language in headlines, even when you need to hedge your bets. "Apparently" makes what it modifies seem shaky, or even illusive. An alternative would be "according to [this source]" or similar.

I understand your point. I'm only questioning the methods used to address it.

@Cobra951: Appreciate the feedback. I'll be more mindful of my titles in future posts.

was revenue supposed to decline when you sell a product?

This article title is wrong and not what actually happened.
It not apparently. It did boost the revenue by a lot.

The title isn't wrong, I made sure to write it out that way in order to avoid getting any flack from trolls that love to only read article headlines and not view the full story. That happens a lot on this website and others.

Step 1: Sell millions of chips to Nintendo

Step 2: Nintendo sells millions of Switches to customers

Step 3: Profits increase !?!?

Who would have guessed that would be the outcome. Welcome to business 101 everyone !!

So Nvidia makes profit on already sold chips because Nintendo then sells the Switch and hands Nvidia more money? For what? Nintendo already paid for the chips.

Business 101 my ass.

I know what you're saying and I'm not assuming the OP meant how you stated, but at the same time constant production after the initial shipment does follow the OP's statement.

Uh, what? The point is that the sales continue, so Nvidia keeps producing more chips for Nintendo because the Switch keeps selling. Continued sales of chips means Nvidia's profits go up.

Lol, you obviously have taken the whole point of my comment out of context and misconstrued it to fit your unwarranted objection!

I suggest before coming with a rebuttal to a comment, you actually try to comprehend what the original comments goal was trying to achieve. Obviously sarcasm was something you missed growing up.

And btw,I never said Nintendo hands them "more money" for the chips they already purchased from them. But like others have stated, more chips will be bought after the initial batch, so yes the more Switches Nintendo sells,the more chips they buy,which means more profit for Nividia !!

Business101 is now in session!!
