(Reuters) - Nvidia Corp reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit and forecast second-quarter revenue above analysts’ estimates on strong demand for its gaming chips and higher sales to data centres, sending its shares up more than 4%.

The company forecast revenue of $2.55 billion, plus or minus 2%, for the quarter, above analysts’ expectations of $2.53 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Nvidia’s net income fell to $394 million, or 64 cents per share, in the first quarter ended April 28 from $1.24 billion, or $1.98 per share, a year earlier.

Excluding items, Nvidia earned 88 cents per share, while analysts had expected a profit of 81 cents per share. Total revenue fell to $2.22 billion, but was still above analysts’ estimates of $2.20 billion.
