According to Taiwanese sources, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang recently visited the nation to assure 3nm orders at TSMC for their next-generation GPU. In addition to speaking with TSMC, Jensen visited numerous AIBs to receive an update on the current GPU inventory and how they are being handled.
NVIDIA CEO Allegedly Visits Taiwan: Talks With TSMC To Secure 3nm Wafers, Help AIBs With RTX 30 GPU Inventory & RTX 4080 12 GB Cancellation
According to MyDrivers, NVIDIA’s CEO recently visited Taiwan to engage with top management from TSMC and their AIB partners. Dr. Lisa Su, AMD’s CEO, was recently rumored to have aspirations to acquire next-generation wafer orders, primarily TSMC 3nm and 2nm. One of the main goals of the mission of TSMC (Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) was to obtain more N5 and 4N capacities and begin discussions for next-generation 3nm wafers.
Clients are rushing up to get their next-generation chips manufactured on TSMC’s cutting-edge 3nm production node, and NVIDIA is one of them. As a result, the corporation must prepare ahead and begin discussions with TSMC before manufacturing. While TSMC’s 3nm node will not be mass-produced until next year, we won’t see next-generation products built on the new node from Apple, AMD, or NVIDIA until 2024. So, we will have to wait long before these corporations begin talking about their next-generation technologies.
However, NVIDIA and AMD have announced their current GPUs and CPUs based on TSMC’s 4N and N5 process nodes, which will have a 2-year life span before being substituted by something new. We don’t know what NVIDIA’s succeeding product will be that uses the 3nm process node, but it might be the Blackwell GPUs that were discussed in an earlier disclosure.
NVIDIA’s CEO has also visited various AIB companies that manufacture their graphics cards. The inspection ensured the GeForce RTX 30 GPU supply situation was managed smoothly. As we all know, NVIDIA was left with a massive supply of GPUs when cryptocurrency fell, and the PC market collapsed. NVIDIA’s AIB partners have recently begun to release a variety of GeForce RTX 30 series products, including the RTX 3070 Ti (GA102), RTX 3060 Ti (GDDR6X), and RTX 3060 (8 GB), in both DIY and OEM sectors. These will assist AIBs in clearing away a big chunk of their inventory so that they may focus on NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series GPUs.
In addition, the business recently reduced the manufacturing capacity of its GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. It transferred it to Data Center HPC/AI chips to satisfy the last outstanding orders of the A100 & H100 GPUs before the China ban.
Finally, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is said to have assured AIBs complete support on the latest RTX 4080 12 GB graphics card cancellation. NVIDIA has already agreed to cover most of the manufacturing costs incurred by its AIBs. The AIBs will undoubtedly view this as a favorable initiative by NVIDIA’s CEO, ensuring that the following release goes more successfully.
