    ATI R520 and NVIDIA G70 Coming 30-May-2005, 03:12.52 Reporter : DaveBaumann

    As if we need any further evidence that new graphics chips are approaching
    Digitimes has posted a report suggesting just that.

    The report indicates that ATI's R520 chip have been produced in small
    volumes on TSMC's 90nm process and that ASE has recieved orders for
    packaging the chip. Meanwhile ASE is suggesting that NVIDIA may place orders
    with them for the packaging and testing of G70.

    What the report doesn't indicate is the volumes and hence where they are
    along in terms of production. The "small volumes" noted for R520 could
    merely be engineering samples that are still being used for evaluation


    ATI and Nvidia to boost ASE 3Q sales
    Amy Lee, Taipei; Carrie Yu, DigiTimes.com [Monday 30 May 2005]

    Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) is expected to have a strong
    third quarter due to orders from ATI Technologies and Nvidia, sources

    ATI's R520 graphics chips have been produced in small volumes at
    Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) using 90nm technology and
    sources indicated that ASE has received orders for related wafer sorting and
    flip-chip (FC) packaging.

    In addition, sources at JP Morgan pointed out that ATI's R500 chips
    will be embedded in Microsoft's new Xbox 360 and is expected to be produced
    at TSMC, with packaging and testing to be handled by ASE.

    Furthermore, Nvidia may also place orders with ASE for FC packaging
    and testing for its G70 chips.
