Nvidia to start production on their 28nm chips soon Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has said this weekend that it will begin production on its 28nm GPU "Kepler" chips soon, for availability in 2012.
The Kepler architecture will be featured in a "massive amount of notebook designs" next year, adds the exec.

Says Huang:

The vast majority of the increase is coming from the very significant increase in design wins that we have in several areas. We have more notebook design wins for the Ivy Bridge cycle than we ever had in notebooks; this is likely the most successful notebook cycle we have ever experienced. And so we have got a lot of engineers dedicated to getting those notebooks into production.


Kepler GeForce chips should bring significant performance improvements and incredible energy efficiency, leading to better battery life for devices and less overheating.
