TSMC and UMC won't have a 0.9u process ready next year

A REPORT IN English-language newspaper the Taipei Times, said that while major chip foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) will be ready to produce 90 nanometer technology in the fourth quarter of this year, demand for such products is well nigh non-existent.
As for the .13 process, it will surely take much less time for ATI to produce a part this size. In this case, NVIDIA was the pioneer. This is a good thing, although it always makes them the "lab rat". They have to deal with all the initial fab problems that will likely be solved by the time ATI looks to make a .13 part.
