Nvidia mobile issue is not as bad
We spent some time to figure out what is actually going on with Nvidia's notebook chip issue. We were told by multiple sources that the issues has been simply blown out of proportion and that the situation is definitely much better than most of the people believe.
We were told by industry sources that so far neither Dell or HP have recalled a single notebook using Nvidia GPUs. You might be aware that mostly notebooks with Geforce 7 and Geforce 8 mobile chips are affected and so far there are no any reports that Geforce 9 mobile series are having the same issue. The issue is related to a mobile chip packaging and obviously, someone used a wrong combination of materials that is leading to this issue.
Dell and HP have announced preventative software updates and extended warranty programs for affected models but they and other OEMs haven't issued full widespread GPU recalls. Dell and HP are probably the most affected simply as they are selling much more SKUs compared to anyone else. This should indicate that the mobile GPU problem is not a widespread epidemic.
