Nvidia's faulty laptop GPUs cause all sorts of headaches


Nvidia will be making significantly less money this quarter thanks to defective GPUs. The company said yesterday that some of its laptop graphics processors have a tendency to overheat, and that it’s taking a $150-$200 million charge to cover the costs of repairs. Yes, I had to look up what “charge” means in this context.

Nvidia says the problem is caused by weak materials. Sounds a lot like Microsoft.

So if you though your laptop GPU was running hotter than normal, turns out you were right. Best get Nvidia on the phone and complain.
