Nvidia denies Tegra 2 yield issue

High quality screen shortage more likely
Back at Vegas we heard a rumor about Tegra 2 yield issue and the same rumor has been confirmed by a few analysts. Nvidia got back to us denying the Tegra 2 yield issue but we heard that high quality screens might be difficult to get these days.

Motorola and LG are on a good path to ship its phones and tablets later this quarter, Point of View is shipping its Tegra 2 tablets in Nordic countries and Holland, while Toshiba got first Folio 100 tablets out last week.

Time will tell if this yield problem is realistic but Nvidia had good parts of 2010 to produce enough of Tegra 2 chips. Of course, if shortages do occur, we are sure that Nvidia has the power to blame it on the high demand.

As for now, the official response is that there are no Tegra 2 yield issues.

NV also denied yield issues for GF100. They cannot be believed, ever.

Now they blamed the LCDs, maybe the batteries next time.

High End LCDs has been there already a little while though not in mass production due to cost, but mid range LCDs can be used on these stuff as a replacement if needed so what can stop them.

I think these companies are on wait and see status before doing a mass production. If you compare what a PC and a tablet can do has lot of gap. Too much risks if they produce where few people might buy. Besides, tablets are not a necessity unlike PCs/laptops.

@pogsnet, that might be another rumor slipped in by Fuad, possibly not nv's official statement.

I would doubt that there is a shortage. These aren't large and complex GPU's as GF100, they are very tiny and the process is mature enough.

The slow adoption probably is the reason such a rumor started in the first place and that might be due to Tegra 1's past "success", or lack there of.

Time will tell if these chips will satisfy its customers or not.

What's new, they've already denied Fermi's massive issues. Nothing new about NVIDIA except for their Mindless Arrogance that will once day get them in hot water.

@Bl0bb3r
You're right... I get it Fuad just make noise for advertisement where he is paid for.

True or not as long as you discuss it, it serves its purpose.

Fuad find more interesting topic besides NV and AMD =(

This is not news, its gossip. Nvidia will continue to dominate the graphics market because there is no competition. Just like in the chip market for Intel. :-)

Your statement makes you sound like you got no idea what you are talking about. What about AMD and it's GRAPHICS Dominance for well over a year now...

Surely Warrior24_7 has been sleeping in the cave for awhile. He doesnt know that AMD/ATI has already 51% of the discrete GPU share lately. Ofcoure the IGP is still dominated by lousy Intel integrated GPU.

This is off topic already. Good luck to ARM world seems they are in hot seat lately and looks interesting.

Would you mind sharing whatever you're smoking?
