NVIDIA to remedy 0.13-micron woes this month
There's an interesting story
over at Silicon Strategies claiming that NVIDIA will resolve the yield problems it's been having with 0.13-micon chips by the end of August. Apparently, the yield problems haven't been TSMC's fault, which makes sense considering ATI's reportedly easy transition to a 0.13-micron manufacturing process for RV350.
We may never know who was really at fault for NVIDIA's NV31 and NV30 yield problems, or if NV35 was affected at all, but NVIDIA appears to have the problem licked just in time for the back-to-school buying season. Students really do need to be equipped with mid-range if not high-end graphics cards for all their, er, homework.
