Default Nvidia 6950 (NV48) was not cancelled

Clearing up any rumors on here:

http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20041220A7039.html

"Nvidia has not given up on the NV48 and is expected to roll out the GPU in the second quarter of next year, despite market rumors saying the company has cancelled the chip, according to sources at Taiwan graphics card makers.

However, Nvidia plans to have Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) produce the NV48, instead of IBM, as originally planned, the sources noted. The NV48 will be built using a 0.11-micron process, the sources added.

Improved yields of the GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6200 manufactured at TSMC would probably be the reason for Nvidia to shift the production of the NV48 back to TSMC, the sources said.

The NV48 will take on ATIís next-generation high-end graphics chip, the R520, which is also expected to be launched in the second quarter of 2005. The R520, however, will be the industryís first GPU produced using a 90-nm process at TSMC."
