Jensen: we are better prepared for 28nm

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Working silicon

Jen Hsun Huang, Nvidia’s CEO was asked about the 28nm transition and he was quite positive about it. Why should not he be, as his job is to make things work and he can hope that all will go well with the transition from 40nm to 28nm. Let me remind you that all semiconductor companies had a really painful transition to 40nm.

 

Jensen claims that in transition from 28nm from current 40nm Nvidia is much better prepared. He said that Nvidia already has working silicon on 28nm, he didn’t tell which one, and that the company is getting ready to start the production on 28nm.

Nvidia has set up an entire organization dedicated to transition to the new node. Too many things are at stake as Nvidia has to transition with both graphics chips and mobile Tegra chips to the new node. The transition is expected to start this year and most likely you won’t see any 28nm chips from Nvidia before 2012.

There is no change, TSMC is the company of choice and Jensen calls this marriage of convenience a “comprehensive engagement between Nvidia and TSMC”.

This sounds good for Nvidia. The only issue I see is they haven’t replaced the current CEO Jensen.
Without Prejudice either Nvidia or Jensen will fail. So IMO for Nvidia to succeed, bye bye Jensen.

Because the transition between 55nm and 40nm for Nvidia was a huge failure that cost them around an 8 month delay in the arrival of DX11 GPUs, resulting in the sell out of GTX200 series and non availability of any GPUs to venders, quarterly losses and XFX's departure to AMD, good enough reason not to be positive?

nVidia are bteer prepared by warning investors that they're gonna be later than AMD ...no matter what!

As I recall, AMD did their homework so they transitioned properly, apart from the f*up of the TSMC engineers which set them back a bit, only nvidia did it painfully.

Anyway, they got a kick in the rear so here's for hoping they've learned something. We should expect products, dear leader!

Fudo, you are wrong. AMD had no trouble with the 40nm transition. They listened to TSMC, and applied their design rules properly (doubling up vias). Nvidia on the other hand, messed it up and blamed TSMC.

As for the transition to 28nm, once again AMD will be first and they will do it properly.

Bye bye Huang.

its my second account,so i wish to apologies for my typical daily trolling and typical idiotism and cretinism showing towards Intel and Nvidia.
I know nothing about IT and i am just 16y old troll,who have nothing to do exept trolling.
amd clear the pipe with 40nm,and still cant compete with Nvidia (thats why my beloved amd turgs putting 2x gpus - not competitive)
As much as i suck for amd,i must admit that Intel and Nvidia way better,its just amd fagboy inside me wont let me say this loud
And suckdozzer already failure even before launch..
bye bye amd,you were always second in every department,i cant take it anymore

Thanks,sincerel y yours
amd fagboy dan and his girlfriend mr.sucker

AMD runs hotter and slower.
