Graphics card manufacturer Nvidia has been named by financial magazine Forbes as its 2007 company of the year.
According to a Shacknews report
, the nod appears in the magazine's January 7, 2008 issue, and highlights Nvidia's advantageous positioning in the graphics market, as well as its recent growth.
The company recently reported
a doubling in its profits during the third fiscal quarter of 2007, and its profits have increased to $900 million.
Nvidia manufactures the PlayStation 3's graphics chip, and the company is also expanding into research analysis hardware, aiming to support sophisticated graphics in web interfaces and other lower-tech arenas.
Said Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, "What if Google Earth had a 3D representation of every single building, every single square meter on Earth, and you could access it in the blink of an eye? The more content there is, the more visual interest there can be, the more processing horsepower people need."
