NVIDIA blames TMSC for Fermi's failures

NVIDIA blames TMSC for Fermi problems

| Video Cards News | Posted: Sep 23, 2010 1:08 pm

Thing's just can't go right for NVIDIA's Fermi - now an interview is out with Jen-Hsun Huang, in which he blames TMSC for Fermi's problems - all of it's performance issues, heat problems all TMSC's fault.

He had the following to say: "The parasitic, umm, characterization from our foundries and the tools and the reality are simply not related. At all. We found that a major breakdown between the models, the tools and reality."

 

But, as Charlie says in his article (in which I agree with) if TMSC were completely at fault - then wouldn't all fabrication done at TMSC have had issues. AMD were able to release the 5xxx series to a smashing success and over 20, 000, 000 GPU's sold in the 5xxx family alone in under 12 months shows this.

 

Charlie also notes that Fermi's failed architecture will be felt in the industry for years - and NVIDIA pointing their finger at TMSC is the wrong thing to do.

 

I'd really love to be a fly on the wall at the green HQ in times like this...
