Nvidia Corp. assured investors Wednesday that demand remains strong for its artificial-intelligence and data-center chips, even as the company continues to struggle with a slowdown in the personal-computer market. 

While revenue declined 17% to $5.93 billion in the fiscal third quarter, that handily beat the $5.79 billion average estimate. Nvidia’s data-center unit posted a 31% sales increase, also beating projections. That helped make up for a 51% drop at the company’s gaming business -- a market tied to PC sales.
