Nvidia has placed orders with United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) for its G92 graphics chips, with the foundry's 12A fab processing 5,000-6,000 wafers for the US client, according to industry sources.Other sources like FUD Zilla claim the GeForce 8800 GT will ship with a HDMI dongle and that the card will have a TDP of 110W.
Although Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) remains Nvidia's major foundry partner, the graphics chip vendor has also placed orders with UMC for its G92 chip, as it steps up output ahead of the upcoming launch of its mid-range chip in November, the sources said. The G92 orders have made Nvidia a major client for UMC's 12-inch fab in Taiwan, the sources added.
