    Default Nvidia delays Fermi to March 2010

    http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20091228PD207.html

    Nvidia is expected to delay its next-generation DirectX 11-supporting GPU (Fermi) to March, 2010, while AMD will launch more GPUs in January-February, according to sources from graphics card makers.

    Nvidia originally scheduled to launch Fermi in November 2009, but was delayed until CES in January 2010 due to defects, according to market rumors. However, the company recently notified graphics card makers that the official launch will now be in March 2010, the sources noted.

    Nvidia plans to launch a 40nm GDDR5 memory-based Fermi-GF100 GPU in March, and will launch a GF104 version in the second quarter to target the high-end market with its GeForce GTX295/285/275/260, the sources pointed out.

    For performance level markets, Nvidia will allow its GeForce GTS250, GT240/220 and 9800GT/9500GT defend against AMD's Radeon HD 5770/5750, 4870/4850 and 4670/4650.

    For the mainstream market, Nvidia will mainly push its GeForce 210.

    Meanwhile, AMD will launch 40nm Radeon HD 5670/5570 (Redwood) and HD 5450 (Cedar) GPUs at the end of January or in February 2010, the sources noted.

    In related news, although Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC's) 40nm process yields have already improved, capacity is still not sufficient to supply the two GPU giants fully which may have an impact the launch schedules, the sources added.

    Nvidia declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products. AMD did not respond by the time of publication.
    I feel bad for all of Nvidia's partners, this long without a competing product has got to be hurting their bottom line.

    Don't feel bad for Nvidia and partners, they were enjoying the good life when G80 released and ATI had nothing for a very long time. Pendulum swings back and forth, such is business with these 2 titans. Right now it's ATI, maybe later Nvidia, we'll see.

    By the time Fermi is out AMD might already have working samples of R900 LOL

    This is a bit disappointing simply because it means no competition for ATI for a few more months so prices will stay high.

    Nvidia have missed the spending spree boat anyway, they may as well take their time and pack in as much as they can...or partner with another electronics company and make high resolution plasma TVs that work in unison...ahhh... now that would be good.
