Traditionally a key Fab strictly for ATI's GPU production, Digitimes reports that UMC supposedly has landed an order from NVIDIA to produce 90u GPU's. Although few details regarding the deal are known, this is surely a move on NVIDIA's part to assist in keeping costs down and ensure that there is always enough volume of chipsets in the channel. With TSMC, IBM, and now UMC producing NVIDIA's GPU's it seems as though the company is very well protected against any major shortage or yield issues thanks to the redundancy of their efforts. Hopefully, this means we'll be seeing more volume of parts in stores after they launch.
