) is expecting revenue to be $6.7 billion, well below guidance and estimates calling for $8.1 billion. The miss was primarily due to weaker-than-forecast gaming revenue, which will come in 33% lower year over year at $2.04 billion.

Adjusted gross margins are expected to come in at 46.1%, down from the company’s previous guidance for 67.1%, Nvidia said.
