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.
