Hmm. "Fabulous job" - Except for that little chip defect that has killed millions of HP laptops these past two years...

This is always one side story when capacity is not enough to go around on the good day, why no one question nVidia putting all their eggs in one basket, and not do the risk management in multiple foundries? or making investment on the manufacturing side so they would have something to say? Certainly don't hearing fabless to share the foundry risk when there the economic turning around.

Another example of a company not being able to meet the surge due to having zero control of manufacturing. Business cannot accelerate when at the mercy of the foundaries.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
