While NVIDIA didn't have tremendous gains in its share price in 2012, the company still performed admirably. Consider its performance versus rival AMD, for example: AMD saw sales plunge 25% last quarter while NVIDIA grew sales 13%.

Can NVIDIA use Tegra gains in smartphones next year to offset PC weakness? In the video below, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at three areas that will determine NVIDIA's success in smartphones -- not just across 2013, but the years ahead.


Fool co-founder David Gardner first sniffed out NVIDIA in 2005 and it's just one of the stock picks he's made that's led to his stocks racking up 120% gains in our Stock Advisor service since it launched in 2002. Those returns have beaten the market by more than 91%. David has managed to trounce the market by always being on the lookout for revolutionary stocks and recommending them before Wall Street catches on to their disruptive potential.
