Hmm... Looks like ATI is going to counter
the NV30 with their R350 chip!
Though the unit cost for 0.15-micron processing is generally higher than
for 0.13-micron processing, ATI noted that the better yield rate that the 0.15-micron
process delivers will be able to cover the overall cost gap. Still, it is believed
that the competitiveness offered by the different processes will become clearer
when Nvidias 0.13-micron NV30 chips hit the market in volume after November.
Hmm... NV30 in November eh?
