28nm Kepler production this year

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Nvidia VP official, products in 2012
We met Ujesh Desai, VP of event marketing at Nvidia, the chap that used to run the Geforce group at Nvidia. We had a pleasant chat and touched many subjects, including PC gaming, 3D vision, notebooks and the future of desktop market.

Ujesh said that 2011 was an exciting year in desktop and that as we have stated many times, Nvidia’s notebook did great. Nvidia PR representative Ken Brown confirmed the recent news that 28nm based Kepler starts production this year, but as Nvidia said before, the roadmap that Jensen showed back in January, is Nvidia’s production roadmap, not their partners.

Despite the fact that Kepler production in 28nm might start very soon, in Q4 2011, actual products based on new chips will only start showing in 2012, probably early 2012. Both chaps confirmed production in late 2011 and products in 2012.

Of course, Nvidia didn't want to comment about any specific details and which chip comes first, desktop or notebook, but they are working on them all, as well as on in house new Quadro cards based on the new chip.
