Nvidia: GPU failures not affecting orders

  1. Despite a widely publicized problem with weak packaging materials last year, which caused some of its laptop graphics chips to fail at “higher than normal rates,” Nvidia claims orders for its mobile graphics chips have not been affected. While we wouldn’t say the same is true for the firm’s reputation, it seems computer builders are still choosing Nvidia’s graphics cores and are actually increasing their usage this year, contrary to what has been previously speculated.

    Is it too much to be honest with consumers these days? ;/ That's just sad. They deserve the lawsuit if that's the way they conduct business.

    Uh, quick response? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding was that that "one time charge" was more of a cop out, as the chips contained failing, and it didn't really cover everything that the big computer manufacturers had to eat in covering replacements under warranty. I don't believe they ever really owned up and just openly said, "We messed up. It was all our fault." They seemed to try and dump as much of the problem on everyone else as possible.

    That Dell article seems to confirm this. Forcing them into paying up 6 months later isn't an admission of guilt or a quick response lol...
