The upcoming R600, which is made on 80nm, is helping ease the oversupply of IC substrates, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, which noted that the chip is expected to be officially announced on either March 8 or 9. The paper said that orders for IC substrates started to be released in late January and the ramp up in demand was evident in the January sales record of major substrate makers, including Nanya Printed Circuit Board (NPC), Phoenix Precision Technology (PPT) and Kinsus Interconnect Technology.
