NVIDIA won't be affected by alleged PS3 delay

If the Sony PS3 console is delayed the sales of NVIDIA's GPUs won't be affected, DigiTimes reports. The reason for this is because the company is only licensing the technology, the production will likely be outsourced by Sony to IBM or TSMC.
Sony will postpone the launch of its PlayStation 3 (PS3) game console from this spring until August, as the company is facing issues with production plans, according to an earlier report.

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Hwang, however, admitted in a conference call that the company would not receive any royalty payments during the current quarter (ending April) from Sony, despite the fact that Nvidia’s RSX graphics chip, the PS3’s graphics engine, is ready, according to a February 17 report by Realm Media Networks.
