NVIDIA reports earnings on Wednesday. Here are two things investors should be watching for.

Graphics specialist NVIDIA (NVDA -1.51%) is due to report earnings on Wednesday, and in this video from Monday's edition of Tech Teardown, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst discusses with host Erin Kennedy what investors should be looking for from the report.

He points to two things. First, he'll be watching how the company did over the holiday shopping quarter, noting that there is a significant gamer population interested in high-end graphics processing units, or GPUs, as stocking-stuffers. However, Evan says that the bulk of his interest with the company is in its Tegra mobile chip business. The Tegra business has long operated at a loss as the company continues to invest in its progress, and with the new Tegra K1 chips featuring custom cores that will require significantly more R&D, Evan is going to have a close eye on whether the operating loss for NVIDIA's Tegra business widens as a result.
