Nvidia CEO claims they are fully prepared for 28nm

/ 7 years ago

Nvidia’s CEO , Jen Hsun Huang, has been answering questions about Nvidia’s transition from 40nm GPUs to 28nm GPUs. His responses were overwhelmingly positive and it appears Nvidia is much better prepared for this transition compared to the last transition from 65nm to 40nm which was particularly problematic. Jen commented that Nvidia already have some working 28nm chips although he didn’t specify which ones.

The transition will be done this year but the actual mainstream production of 28nm GPUs will take a while into 2012 before we start seeing graphics cards. AMD is also in a similar situation, they have working samples of 28nm technology too and they will probably be able to launch in early 2012. However, from early reports it would appear AMD is likely to be ready to launch slightly earlier. There is no change of company choice, Nvidia will be using TSMC to develop theirs whilst AMD still appears to be going with both TSMC and Global Foundries based on latest reports.
