NVIDIA G80 In Mid 2006

ATI has accelerated production of its R580, an upgrade of its current 90nm flagship chip. By adding the R580 to stimulate demand, ATI expects its 90nm GPUs to become the main force of its mid-range and high-end GPU lines in the first quarter of 2006. ATI’s failure to meet its sales goal for the Radeon X1800 (R520) chip was reportedly due to a reported shortage caused by a lack of upstream components. Other industry insiders, however, said that the limited supply was due to design issues with the R520 chip disrupting shipment schedules. NVIDIA is currently in volume production of its 90nm GPU series, the G71, G72 and G73. NVIDIA also plans to introduce its next flagship chip, the NV50, in the middle of next year.
