The shortage of NVIDIA Kepler will keep for several months
So far Nvidia has released three products based on its new desktop Kepler architecture , the GPU Geforce GTX 680 , Geforce GTX 670 and dual-GPU solution GeForce GTX 690 , but unfortunately it is very difficult for many users the power to purchase any of them by its current limited availability.
Himself CEO of Nvidia, Jen-Hsun Huang, has come to clarify the situation, to which claims were too optimistic in their forecasts with the manufacturing process at TSMC 28nm, so that its output is well below than expected, a situation that was exacerbated by a demand also higher than expected.
It is hoped that this situation will improve in the coming months, as Nvidia has won the favor of TSMC, which give preference to the Nvidia chip manufacturing to 28nm, over the chip manufacturing companies like AMD and Qualcomm, and it is Probably this has been one of the main reasons why Qualcomm decided to choose GlobalFoundries and its main manufacturing plant , and AMD decided to cancel the production of APUs to 28nm at TSMC preferring GlobalFoundries .
It is assumed that the harsh criticism of Nvidia to TSMC have had to do with the recent decision of the Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer TSMC.
In the following months there will be a greater volume of Nvidia chip production, but have not given specific dates. We will keep you informed.
