Nvidia CEO to visit TSMC in October for GT300/40nm yields

In the second half of October, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will travel to TSMC headquarters in Hsinchu, Taiwan to discuss contract prices for 40nm GPU chip production. In addition, he will be making the trip to meet with the company's motherboard and graphics AIB partners.

Discussions will be held with TSMC chairman Morris Chang regarding full-scale 40nm production. Meanwhile, Jensen will also be checking up on the current 40nm yields, which TSMC claims have risen from 30 percent to 60 percent in July.

Interestingly enough, Digitimes is reporting that Jensen will check up on the company's long anticipated high-end GT300 GPU, which it says is expected to launch in December.

still coming in novemeber you reckon kakkoi?, it doesn't seem so, but like many have said that may just be a 'paper release' when they are officially released, but not yet in stores.

I'm currently still saving my $'s so if it takes longer it wont affect me, but damn it sucks ( used to earn $700 a week for part time- now unemployed), but i still gotta keep in the game

EDIT: just reread my comment and it sounded sarcastic, but it wasn't meant to be, I reckon if the 60% yeilds are true we could easily see them out in nov

Yeah, paper launch is in all likelihood going to happen sometime in November. Then actual availability in December, before Christmas. Signing the contracts to start full scale production in October gives enough time for actual products to be out by December. Hopefully TSMC doesn't experience anymore problems. Or i'ma feel really sorry for Nvidia.

Nvidia really is shaving it close this year. But delays happen when you completely redesign your chips (If that turns out to be true.) ATI only had to merge 2 of their RV7xx chips into one, tweak in DX11 support and add the Eyefinity pipeline.
