IBM and NVIDIA today announced the two companies have formed a multi-year strategic alliance under which IBM will manufacture NVIDIA,s next-generation GeForce graphics processor units (GPUs).

 

As part of the agreement, NVIDIA will gain access to IBM,s comprehensive suite of foundry services and leading-edge manufacturing technologies, including power-efficient copper wiring, and a roadmap that leads to 65nm (nanometer; a billionth of a meter) in the next several years, giving the company the necessary tools to advance its state-of-the-art GPUs.

 

IBM plans to begin manufacturing the next-generation GeForce graphics processor this summer at IBM,s state-of-the-art 300mm plant in East Fishkill, N.Y. The new IBM $2.5 billion chip-making facility combines, for the first time anywhere, IBM chip-making breakthroughs such as copper interconnects, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) transistors and low-k dielectric insulation on 300mm wafers. The new facility began operation last year, and will ramp up in capacity throughout 2003.
