    16 nm and 12 nm production lines, no?

    Correct. For Nvidia, affects Pascal and Turing.

    Ouch. That's a full quarter before production will be back up to speed.

    Aren't the PS4 and XBone SoCs affected? Are those are made at a different Fab?

    Regardless, these news couldn't come at a better time, really.

    nVidia is apparently still trying to sell Pascal stock while competing with the 2nd-hand market and Turing sales are falling short of expectations.
    On the smartphone side, companies have been declaring slower sales with customers taking much longer to upgrade, so I'm guessing these weren't really starved for SoC volume either.

    On the other hand, PS4 sales are slowing down, and Xbox is well... :yelling: /runs away

    Guess no one was handy with a fly swatter.

    This seems like it could be a big deal. I saw it a bit in msm. What percent of Nvidia products are there?
