400,000 GeForce 8800 GPUs shipped

Posted on Thursday, February 15 2007 @ 01:35:25 CET by

NVIDIA unveiled during a conference call that it has shipped 400,000 GeForce 8800 graphics chips since October.
“Since October, we shipped nearly 400 thousand of GeForce 8800s. Our focus for desktop GPU is to leverage our leadership position with GeForce 8 into the mainstream market,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, chief executive and president of Nvidia.

Launched in early November, 2007, the GeForce 8800 became popular among high-performance graphics enthusiasts overnight. For some reason, Mr. Huang said that Nvidia has already beaten its arch-rival ATI, the graphics product group of Advanced Micro Devices, by six months in terms of time-to-market with the DirectX 10 hardware. Meanwhile, sources familiar with AMD’s plans indicate that the company’s Radeon X2800-series (code-named R600) supporting DirectX 10 will be released in March.

“The GeForce 8800 has beaten the competition to market by well over six months and counting,” Mr. Huang told financial analysts.
