NVIDIA CEO visits TSMC to check GeForce 8800 production

Huang Jen-hsun, NVIDIA's CEO, is in Taiwan to make sure that TSMC has sufficient capacity for the production of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 8800 which will be released next month.

DigiTimes writes Huang wants to make sure that ATI's bookings for TSMC's 80nm capacity don't affect the production of NVIDIA's G80 GPU.
Huang is eager to get a head start on the G80 because ATI's DirectX 10-compliant R600 may not hit the market until the first quarter of 2007, the sources said. The G80 stands a good chance of seeing strong demand in the high-end graphics-chip markets during the Christmas shopping season, the sources added.
