    If they're (finally) coming clean now it probably means they messed up with their 28nm process even worse than anticipated.

    Not really surprising. After all there had to be some explanation as to the absence of new GPU stock.

    'and all our 28nm customers are fully aware of our production status'......these people are microscopic!

    To quote Jerry Sanders:
    "Real men own real Fabs" :-D

    Get what you deserve for outsourcing to a foundry

    this better explains Nvidia's comments on wanting Intel to be one of their fabs.

    They are getting somewhat of a reputation for this. Unfortunate really as most of us lose out in some way. TSMC might lose custom in the future, AMD/Nvidia/3rd party can't ship cards in the quantities they would like to, and we get cards that cost a bit more than they might otherwise have cost.
