Nvidia ships 0
AMD can open the champers, as it has managed to ship 2 million
Radeon 5000 series DirectX 11 chips since it launched Cypress three
months ago. In mid December AMD's DX11 shipments were estimated at
around 800,000 units.
After overcoming crippling shortages, the outfit apparently managed to
ship over a million chips in the last 4 weeks alone. Senior VP and AMD
Products Group General Manager Rick Bergman said the result underscored
the ingenuity and innovation poured into the Evergreen series. It also
underscored the fact that Nvidia missed quite a few launch targets for
its Fermi architecture.
AMD currently has five DirectX 11 cards to offer, with more than a
dozen mobile and low end chips coming soon. Nvidia has none, and it
probably won't have any for the next eight to ten weeks, if not more.
