UMC gets order from DAAMIT

But only for old GPU's


DigiTimes reports that United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) has recieved an order from DAMMIT for some 10,000 12-inch wafers of RV505 and RV516 GPU's.

This is apparently because Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is busy building the performance parts for both ATI and Nvidia and there's simply no more space at TSMC's fab for these low-end parts.
