Nvidia Corp. is finally satisfied with the yields at 28nm node of Taiwan Semiconductor Company. The fabless giant believes that it is meeting the supply of its 28nm Kepler graphics processor.

“28nm yield and 28nm supply situation have both improved substantially. And so we feel pretty good about the balance of supply and demand at the moment,” said Jen Hsun-Huang, chief executive officer of Nvidia.

Earlier this year Nvidia’s head complained about yields for 28nm-based products as well as inability of TSMC to fulfill the demand  for such modern chips in general.

Partly because of improved yields, but mostly because of rising demand for its products, Nvidia last week reported record $1.2 billion in revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, an all-time-record for the company. Nvidia attributes its increase of sales to high demand for its gaming graphics processing units, compute accelerators and Tegra line of mobile system-on-chips.

you should rephrase article title:
nvidia feels "great" benefiting from increased pricing of their 28nm products

It's a business, pal. Not a charity.

Hey Nvidia is better than AMD who only wants to make money. AMD doesn't care about making better products just more money.

I hope that's a sarcastic post. Neither NV nor AMD are a charity. Your post seems like blatant trolling though. AMD lowered prices many times this generations and continued to add value to gamers by bundling games.

As far as enthusiast features go, they gave gamers dual-BIOS switches for easy flashing, full voltage control and 100% guarantee warranty on HD7970 even if you increase voltage from 1.175V to 1.25V. NV offered none of these things this round, and actually forced EVGA and MSI to remove voltage control from Classified and Lightning models.

Furthermore, GTX680 is actually slower than 7970 Ghz and currently HD7000 series continue to offer superior price/performance. So how exactly does AMD not care about making better products?

If you look at earnings, it's actually NV that's making a killing. How? Selling us GK104 for high-end prices for most of this generation. Also, by NV not lowering prices much despite offering worse price/performance across GTX600 series, you are actually contradicting yourself as NV continues to charge higher prices for slower performance.

Fall 2012 GPU and Driver Comparison Roundup - November 12, 2012

High pricing band = For those that must have the absolute highest frame rates , the Radeon HD 7970 seems to pull ahead of the GTX 680. The GTX 670 brings up the rear in this price band

Middle pricing band = Radeon HD 7950 with Boost simply demolished the GTX 660 Ti across the board with regards to raw frame rates and overall game play experience across our suite of testing.

Low pricing band = Radeon HD 7870 held up well on its own, matching the game play experience and raw frame rates to the GTX 660 Ti

How can a company that offers superior price/performance be ripping gamers off, but NV is a saint?

Nvidia isn't a saint fool. Your pricing bands are completely off all of the cards you speak of ARE HIGH END CARDS. I am saying that AMD is the greediest computer company of the current generation.

How is my pricing off? I listed to you cards that compete against each based on price in North America:

HD7970 Ghz > GTX680
HD7970 > GTX670
HD7950 V2 > GTX660Ti
HD7870 > GTX660
HD7850 2GB > GTX650Ti 2GB
HD7850 1GB > GTX650Ti 1GB
HD7770 > GTX650
HD7750 > GT640

AMD offers superior price/performance and performance at each level. That disproves your comment automatically. So how exactly is AMD a greedy company? Don't call me a fool. Your post is just trolling. You have nothing to back up your assertion. That's not even taking into account the game bundles. AMD's CPUs are also priced much cheaper than Intel's.

You have no argument. How can AMD be the "greediest computer company" of the current generation and yet offer class-leading price/performance, performance, overclocking and game bundles? 1234 is your best friend.
