NVIDIA started trial runs of chips on 80nm manufacturing at TSMC and UMC:
Both Nvidia and ATI Technologies are gearing up for migration to 80nm process production, with ATI scheduled to production later this year at both TSMC and UMC.

Nvidia CEO Huang Jen-hsun has described TSMC as its closest production partner, with the foundry making 90% of its products. The other 10% are manufactured by UMC and Chartered Semiconductor.

Nvidia said it will make the best use of its manufacturing partners' advanced processes, and it will make announcements concerning its production strategy at a proper time.
