Nvidia Corp., the biggest maker of graphics chips used to enhance computer gaming, forecast third-quarter sales that will beat analysts’ estimates as new products help attract players in search of the most realistic experience.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer Jen-Hsun Huang has kept Nvidia on a growth path by finding new users for its graphics chips even as the PC market shrinks. He’s been helped by gamers’ persistent willingness to upgrade to the highest-performing parts and the increasing use of different versions of those chips in new markets, such as artificial intelligence and autonomous cars.
