NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang claimed that while his company wasn't the first to adopt the 40nm process, it is now the largest producer of 40nm chips:
“I think the general buzz around the industry is that we are by far the largest producers of 40nm today and I think that that is, probably, consistent. We have shipped more and earlier than just about anybody, and we have not spoken a lot about our 40nm products because we have fabulous products that we are currently shipping and so we tend not to pre-announce products until the customers are really shipping themselves. We are ramping our 40nm product[s] now,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, chief executive officer and president of Nvidia Corp., during a quarterly conference call with financial analysts.


“By Q4, [40nm products] will represent a very large portion of our revenue. It certainly will not represent the vast majority of it. […] My expectation is that by Q3 [2010] timeframe, it will represent the vast majority of our products,” claimed Mr. Huang.
