(Reuters) – Chipmaker Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) Corp said on Monday total revenue from its first quarter would be above its earlier forecast $5.3 billion.

The company’s shares, which rose on the back of a slew of product announcements during the session, were up more than 6%.

“While our fiscal 2022 first quarter is not yet complete, Q1 total revenue is tracking above the $5.30 billion outlook,” Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress said in a statement.

“We expect demand to continue to exceed supply for much of this year,” Kress added.

Earlier on Monday, Nvidia said it was planning to make a server processor chip based on technology from Arm Ltd, putting it in the most direct competition yet with rival Intel Corp (NASDAQ:INTC).
