ATI and NVIDIA both placed more orders for 80nm and 65nm chips at TSMC, according to a Chinese newspaper.
Equipment makers estimate that orders for 80nm and 65nm production at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), as a consequence, may double sequentially in the second quarter, the paper said.

Nvidia is expected to start volume shipments of its forthcoming G84 and G86 graphics chips, respectively targeting entry-level and mainstream markets, from June, after rolling out them in April. ATI will likely ramp up orders for its 80nm R600 at TSMC from February-March, and 65nm RV610 and RV630 are expected to follow in June-July, the paper added.
