With the conference call yesterday, an investor offered a nice question about 28nm and surprisingly received an informative answer and why I enjoy the Q&A aspect of the calls:

Hans Mosesmann - Raymond James & Associates, Inc.

And if I can, just a quick follow-up. 28 nanometer, how does that look relative to 40-nanometer? That was a tough industry transition. Can you give comment there?

Jen-Hsun Huang

28, we are far, far better prepared for 28 than we were for 40. Because we took it so much more seriously. We were successful on so many different nodes for so long that we all collectively, as an industry, forgot how hard it is. And so one of the things that we did this time around was to set up an entire organization that is dedicated to advanced nodes. And we've had many, many tests chips run on 28-nanometer. We have working silicon and, momentarily, about to go to production with 28-nanometer. And it's looking really good, it's looking much, much better than our experience with 40-nanometer. It's just a comprehensive, across-the-board engagement between TSMC and ourselves, and making sure that we're ready for production ramp when the time comes. So I feel really good about 28.

I highly doubt that. The rumors of the first ATI 28nm cards are the low end ones first and the high end coming in 2012.

I'm in no hurry for either camp to put out the next gen of cards. My "old" 5870 still kicks some major ass. I am however updating my mobo and mem to add some additional life to my old 5870.

Early 2012 should prove to be fun....for both camps.

Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 motherboard
AMD Phenom ll X4 965 BE OC'd @ 3.6GHz
Vendetta cooler 120mm fan
16GB G. Skill Ripsaw DDR3 1600MHz memory
Powercolor 5870 OC'd to 949/1255
(OC'd only when gaming of course)
11.8 Cat drivers
650W power supply
Seagate 1TB 7200RPM SATA HD
Sony dual layer 16X DVD/CD Writer
LG 8X Blu-ray Writer
