In consideration of the termination of the Remaining Warrants, the Company will deliver shares of Common Stock to Goldman, the amount of which will be determined each day based on the daily volume-weighted average price of the Common Stock during an observation period beginning June 5, 2017 and ending June 30, 2017.

SECOND WARRANT TERMINATION AGREEMENT

This SECOND WARRANT TERMINATION AGREEMENT (this “ Termination Agreement ”) is made as of June 2, 2017 between Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC (“ Dealer ”) and NVIDIA Corporation (“ Counterparty ”), a Delaware corporation.

WHEREAS, Dealer and Counterparty are parties to the base warrant transaction (as amended, modified or supplemented, the “ Base Warrant Transaction ”) evidenced by the letter agreement between Dealer and Counterparty, dated as of November 25, 2013 (as amended, modified or supplemented, the “ Base Warrant Confirmation ”).

WHEREAS, the parties have terminated a portion of the Base Warrant Transaction pursuant to the Warrant Termination Agreement dated as of December 12, 2016 between the parties.

WHEREAS, the parties have agreed to terminate the remaining portion of the Base Warrant Transaction on the terms and conditions set forth herein.

WHEREAS, terms defined in the Base Warrant Confirmation and not defined in this Termination Agreement shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Base Warrant Confirmation.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of their mutual covenants contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, hereby mutually covenant and agree as follows:

1.     Termination of Transaction and Confirmation . Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Base Warrant Confirmation, upon the occurrence of the Observation Date (as defined below) for a Tranche of Warrants (as defined below), without further action by any party hereto, each party hereto agrees that:

(a)    with respect to such Tranche of Warrants, the respective rights and obligations of each party hereto under the Base Warrant Transaction and the Base Warrant Confirmation shall be terminated, cancelled and extinguished and deemed to have been satisfied and discharged in full, and the only remaining obligation of the parties with respect to such Tranche of Warrants shall be the obligation of Counterparty to deliver the number of Shares payable for such Tranche of Warrants, determined as set forth below, and no other payments or deliveries shall be due to or from either Dealer or Counterparty pursuant to the terms of the Base Warrant Confirmation with respect to such Tranche of Warrants; and

(b)    each party hereto shall be released and forever discharged by each other party hereto from obligations under the Base Warrant Transaction and the Base Warrant Confirmation with respect to such Tranche of Warrants, other than with respect to representations and warranties set forth in the Base Warrant Confirmation and with respect to indemnification or contribution obligations under the Base Warrant Confirmation arising as a result of events occurring prior to the Observation Date with respect to the last Tranche of Warrants to be terminated hereunder, each of which shall survive.

2.     Procedure for Determining the Number of Shares Payable for each Tranche of Warrants . Subject to the terms hereof, the parties agree to terminate all of the Warrants described in the Base Warrant Confirmation. The Warrants to be terminated shall be divided into 20 tranches (each, a “ Tranche of Warrants ”), as set forth in Schedule 1. On the Observation Date (as defined below) for a Tranche of Warrants, the number of Shares payable by Counterparty for such Tranche of Warrants shall be determined by multiplying (a) the quotient of (x) the “USD Amount per Warrant” determined in the manner proscribed in Schedule 2 for the VWAP Price (as defined below) for such Observation Date, divided by (y) such VWAP Price, by (b) the number of Warrants included in such Tranche of Warrants, and rounding to the nearest whole number of Shares. An “ Observation Date ” means June 5, 2017 and each of the 19 Scheduled Trading Days thereafter; provided that if any such date is a Disrupted Day in whole (or if any such date is a Disrupted Day in part and the Calculation Agent does not determine that such Observation Date shall be an Observation Date for fewer than all the Warrants in the corresponding Tranche of Warrants), such date shall not be an Observation Date, and





an additional Observation Date shall occur on the Scheduled Trading Day after the date that would otherwise be the final Observation Date.

VWAP Price ” for any Observation Date means the volume-weighted average price of the Rule 10b-18 eligible trades in the Shares for the entirety of such Observation Date as determined by reference to the screen entitled “NVDA <Equity> AQR SEC” or any successor page as reported by Bloomberg L.P. (without regard to pre-open or after-hours trading outside of any regular trading session for such Observation Date) (or if such volume-weighted average price is unavailable or manifestly incorrect, the market value of one Share on such Observation Date, as determined by the Calculation Agent using a volume-weighted methodology). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if (i) any Observation Date is a Disrupted Day in part and (ii) the Calculation Agent determines that such Observation Date shall be an Observation Date for fewer than all the Warrants in the corresponding Tranche of Warrants, then the VWAP Price for the relevant Observation Date shall be the volume-weighted average price per Share on such Observation Date on the Exchange, as determined by the Calculation Agent based on such sources as it deems appropriate using a volume-weighted methodology, for the portion of such Observation Date for which the Calculation Agent determines there is no Market Disruption Event, and an additional Observation Date shall occur on the Scheduled Trading Day after the date that would otherwise be the final Observation Date for the remaining Warrants in such Tranche of Warrants.

3.     Delivery of Shares . Counterparty shall deliver the number of Shares payable with respect to a Tranche of Warrants on the third Scheduled Trading Day following the corresponding Observation Date or, if such day is not a Clearance System Business Day, on the next Clearance System Business Day immediately following such day (the “ Delivery Date ” for such Tranche of Warrants) to the account of Dealer specified below. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (a) the number of Shares payable by Counterparty with respect to each Tranche of Warrants for which the related Observation Date has not yet occurred is subject to adjustment by the Calculation Agent from the date hereof until the last Delivery Date hereunder as if such number of Shares were a term of the Base Warrant Confirmation and (b) in no event shall Counterparty at any time be required to deliver an aggregate number of Shares greater than 22,986,820 (subject to adjustment in the same manner as the Maximum Number of Shares) to Dealer under this Termination Agreement.

4.     Effectiveness . The termination of the Base Warrant Transaction and the Base Warrant Confirmation with respect to a Tranche of Warrants contemplated by this Termination Agreement shall be effective only upon the occurrence of the Observation Date for such Tranche of Warrants.

5.     Representations and Warranties of Counterparty . Counterparty represents and warrants to Dealer on the date hereof that:

(a) it is duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its organization or incorporation and, if relevant under such laws, in good standing;

(b)    it has the power to execute this Termination Agreement and any other documentation relating to this Termination Agreement to which it is a party, to deliver this Termination Agreement and to perform its obligations under this Termination Agreement and has taken all necessary action to authorize such execution, delivery and performance;

(c)    such execution, delivery and performance do not violate or conflict with any law applicable to it, any provision of its constitutional documents, any order or judgment of any court or other agency of government applicable to it or any of its assets or any contractual restriction binding on or affecting it or any of its assets;

(d)    all governmental and other consents that are required to have been obtained by it with respect to this Termination Agreement have been obtained and are in full force and effect and all conditions of any such consents have been complied with;

(e)    its obligations under this Termination Agreement constitute its legal, valid and binding obligations, enforceable in accordance with their respective terms (subject to applicable bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency,





moratorium or similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject, as to enforceability, to equitable principles of general application (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at law));

(f)    following the public disclosure of this Termination Agreement, it is not in possession of any material nonpublic information regarding Counterparty or the Shares;

(g)    it (A) is capable of evaluating investment risks independently, both in general and with regard to all transactions and investment strategies involving a security or securities; (B) will exercise independent judgment in evaluating the recommendations of any broker-dealer or its associated persons, unless it has otherwise notified the broker-dealer in writing; and (C) has total assets of at least $50 million;

(h)    it is not entering into this Termination Agreement to create actual or apparent trading activity in the Shares (or any security convertible into or exchangeable for the Shares) or to raise or depress or otherwise manipulate the price of the Shares (or any security convertible into or exchangeable for the Shares) or otherwise in violation of the Exchange Act; and

(c)    such execution, delivery and performance do not violate or conflict with any law applicable to it, any provision of its constitutional documents, any order or judgment of any court or other agency of government applicable to it or any of its assets or any contractual restriction binding on or affecting it or any of its assets;

(d)    all governmental and other consents that are required to have been obtained by it with respect to this Termination Agreement have been obtained and are in full force and effect and all conditions of any such consents have been complied with; and

7.     Counterparty Purchases . Counterparty covenants to Dealer that, on any Observation Date, neither Counterparty nor any “affiliate” or “affiliated purchaser” (each as defined in Rule 10b-18) shall directly or indirectly (including, without limitation, by means of any cash-settled or other derivative instrument) purchase, offer to purchase, place any bid or limit order that would effect a purchase of, or commence any tender offer relating to, any Shares (or an equivalent interest, including a unit of beneficial interest in a trust or limited partnership or a depository share) or any security convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Shares, except purchases through Dealer.
