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.
