ATI and Nvidia said to be uncertain about 80nm production

ATI Technologies and Nvidia will focus on graphics chips manufactured on a 90nm process technology rather than migrating their production to 80nm this year, due to yield and technology issues for wafer manufacturing, according to first-tier graphics card makers. Although ATI initially planned to launch graphics chips (RV570, RV560, RV535 and RV505) that adopt an 80nm manufacturing process in the third quarter of this year, the makers expect ATI to first roll out 90nm versions of those chips, as the company has been able to improve its yields on 90nm technology production.
