NVIDIA will not be tapping up TSMC's 7 nm nodes anytime soon, according to a new report by The Korea Economic Daily. Instead, Samsung and NVIDIA have reputedly signed a second deal for the manufacture of GPUs. The new deal comes after NVIDIA admitted that supply constraints were at the root of why it has produced so far RTX 30 series graphics cards.
The Korea Economic Daily has not divulged the details of the new deal between Samsung and NVIDIA, but it is expected to run to hundreds of billions of KRW. Citing industry officials, The Korea Economic Daily adds that NVIDIA favoured Samsung over TSMC in part because of the need for quick delivery of GPUs.
NVIDIA is not waiting around for chip availability to improve before its releases more graphics cards, though. On the contrary, it has already announced a new GeForce RTX hardware event for January 12 where it is expected to present new graphics cards.
Based on recent rumours, NVIDIA may launch multiple cards next month, including the RTX 3050 and RTX 3060. The additional deal is speculated to extend to the supply of GPUs for a SUPER refresh of the RTX 30 series too, though. If that is the case, then we would expect NVIDIA to begin selling these towards the end of 2021.
