NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said the 40nm process is ramping up quickly, he expects 25 to 30 percent of his company's sales will be 40nm by the end of the year, while the rest will be 55nm.
He explains that many chips will remain 55nm simply as some important chips such as MCP79, also known as Geforce 9400 and Ion, are 55nm, and it will remain 55nm in this year and they expect some serious sales from this chip.

In the graphics world, we can imagine that there will be many 55nm legacy products, but many 40nm chips to launch will go into notebooks, as Nvidia wants to grow there.
