Jon Peddie, head of Jon Peddie Research, estimates that Nvidia have shipped over 400,000 Fermi based Geforce and Tesla cards to date, corroborating Jen-Hsun Huang’s recent announcement that Nvidia had shipped “a few hundred thousand” GPUs. By disabling 1 SM in the GTX 480 and 2 SM in the Tesla C2050, Nvidia has been able to increase yields substantially.

Jon Peddie said, “I think most of Nvidia’s problems are behind and they are back on
track. You will see a whole slew of derivative products in the next few months.”

It does seem like Nvidia has resolved their most significant problems. With a range of derivative products, and even a rumoured refresh upcoming, Nvidia seems to be on its way to recovery. 

The next few months will certainly be exciting, with Nvidia’s derivative/refresh products, and ATI’s next-generation upcoming.
