Stock buybacks and dividends on the agenda.

Graphics specialist and mobile chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA -6.82%) intends to return $1 billion of capital to investors this fiscal year, the company announced today.

The return will be in the form of share repurchases as well as dividends, including $100 million in stock being repurchased in the current quarter.

The company launched its quarterly dividend program in November 2012, and has since returned $200 million to shareholders to date. That total includes $100 million in stock buybacks and $100 million in dividends so far. Most of the $1 billion will be through the company's repurchase program. The company's quarterly dividend is $0.075 per share, amounting to about $50 million a quarter.

CEO Jen-Hsun Huang expressed confidence in NVIDIA's cash-generating capabilities, saying its strategies are gaining traction.
