Nvidia Wants to Ensure Reliability of GeForce 8 Graphics Cards
Nvidia Corp. has reportedly updated chip packaging of its GeForce 8-series graphics cards in order to improve reliability and availability, according to documents seen by the media. Since graphics cards belong to the lineup of desktop solutions, Nvidia might have experienced abnormal failure rates, which will cause the company to take another charge that could be hundreds of millions big.
Apparently, Nvidia has changed packaging material for G86-303-A2, G86-103-A2 as well as G86-213-A2, which power low-end desktop GeForce 8400-series graphics cards. According to The Inquirer web-site, which claims that it has seen a product change notification by Nvidia, “Nvidia will transition from using Namics 8439-1 underfill material to Hitachi 3730 underfill material for the G86 desktop product” models only.
