TSMC and Nvidia ship one-billionth GPU

Written by


Twelve years of cooperation
Chipmaker for hire TSMC and Nvidia have announced the shipment of the one-billionth Geforce graphics core.

In a collaboration spanning three decades, the two outfits have gone through several GPU generations and manufacturing nodes, starting with the ancient 250nm Riva cores. Currently TSMC produces 40nm parts designed by Nvidia and the 28nm node should come on line later this year.

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang noted that the complexity of Nvidia’s GPUs has increased by more than one thousand times since the start of the partnership.

TSMC CEO Morris Chang cited the success as a prime example of successful cooperation between foundries and fables companies.

/sarcasm mode on
yeah i bet, most people get quite confused with all the rebranding of older gen cards :P
/sarcasm mode off

but seriously, its nice to see that even tough the increasing complexity they will move to a new node in a visible future
i hope that will help decrease their tdp on nvidia's gpu cores, that is still one huge issue for green flavored card..
if they would fix that, they allow for some more OC potentional and they would have a winner gen card

Congratz to both companies, i hope they make it to 1 trillion and beyond....

More OC potential ? When compared to what ? The pathetic overclocks achieved by the competition ?

If NVIDIA's GPUs have a problem, it certainly isn't the OC potential.

I like ATI, but you're right.

Prime example - GTX 460

maybe, but at least they aren't these issues: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/nvidia_gpu_class-action_suit_settlement_reaches_claim-filing_stage

@Scootiep, how would there be?... AMD's didn't sold those failed chips to customers, where as nvidia and the oem's which knew about the issue, even apple, still went ahead, in your precious competitive capitalism, screwing over their customers. And the settlement was a joke!
