NVIDIA's GT300 coming along well for Q4'09

NV's first DX 11 GPU shaping up well

Word's come in from the horse's mouth that NVIDIA's first DirectX 11 (GT300) GPU is shaping up okay and should make it for a Q4'09 launch, despite previous reports indicating delays and yield issues.

It seems that the GT300 has been taped out long ago and that yields are fine. This statement comes from a senior product manager for the GT300, but we also have this from our own sources [who have been saying this all along].

 

So where did the rumors of sub 2% yields come from? Well according to the unnamed source it looks like AMD's Competitive Analysis team mistranslated some information that stated only 9 chips per wafer worked. This information quickly spread around the internet and became what we like to call "the repeated truth". Bear in mind that this was the same team in charge of spreading rumors that Larrabee is now in its third or fourth generation of silicon, which is direly incorrect. But we'll address Larrabee and the turmoil there in a future article.
