All 8400M, 8600M chips are faulty, report says

Posted July 11, 2008 by admin in News

…the problem is much worse than it even sounds — according to a report in The Inquirer, every single G84 and G86 GPU in the 8400M and 8600M series of cards is affected. Apparently both chips share an ASIC, and the core design suffers from the same heat-related issues. That certainly implicates a “significant quantity” of chips, all right, but this is just a rumor for now — one that’s probably best handled by NVIDIA stepping up and letting its customers know exactly how big the problem is.
