Nvidia Corp. has delayed the delivery of about 20,000 processed uncut wafers of its GeForce FX5200 from Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd (TSMC). This was done to avoid accumulation of its entry-level graphics chips inventory, which currently has around 5 million units, including the GeForce MX4000 and GeForce FX5200.

The wafers will remain at TSMC's warehouse instead of being delivered to testing and packaging companies for back-end processing.

Launch of the Intel 915G chipset affected the sales of Nvidia, forcing down the prices of the MX4000 to about 10 percent (now selling at $11 to $12) and FX5200 to about 20 percent (now selling at $16). Sales of the 915 and PCIe integrated graphics chips are expected to move up in the fourth quarter. This is expected to push Nvidia and the distributors to clear out their inventories of entry-level graphics chips.
