Sales for chip manufacturer Nvidia, which has absorbed the bulk of the hype around artificial intelligence advances, tripled in the last quarter compared to a year ago according to today’s much-anticipated earnings report. This beat Wall Street projections, which had increased to adapt to the optimistic outlook.

Nvidia saw a revenue of $22.1 billion in the last fiscal quarter, for a net profit of $12.29 billion compared to $1.41 billion last year. This fiscal year (which ended on January 28th) opened with $7.19 billion in earnings in its first quarter. Analysts had predicted a $20.4 billion revenue. Additionally, Nvidia expects to see $24 billion in sales for the current quarter.
