ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series delayed to Q1 2010

Posted on Thursday, November 05 2009 @ 16:57:38 CET by

DigiTimes reports the shortage of ATI Radeon HD 5000 and Radeon HD 4000 series graphics cards forced PC vendors to delay products by about two months to Q1 2010. The report also mentions that this shortage forced AMD to delay volume shipments of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series to Q1 2010.
AMD's 40nm ATI Radeon HD 5000 series and 55nm ATI Radeon HD 4000 series GPUs are currently both facing shortages; the former due low yields on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC's) 40nm process and the later due to AMD's conservative attitude towards its 55nm GPU sales after the launch of 40nm products, the sources noted.

In addition to graphics cards and desktops, the shortage is also forcing AMD to delay the mass shipment schedule of its ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series (Manhattan) GPUs for notebooks to the first quarter of 2010 from the originally planned fourth quarter of 2009.

If they get a regularly updated mobile driver program in place by then, Nvidia's mobile GPU business is in a ton of trouble because Nvidia's core mobile chip tech is 5 years out of date.
