“Due to Nvidia did clearly explaining the details of the faults reported in its notebook GPUs, some channel vendors have demanded graphics card makers issue a recall for desktop-based discrete graphics cards using the same GPU core, according to sources at graphics card makers.
Nvidia has commented that the faulty notebook GPU problem only exists in a few specific notebook models made by specific clients. The company contended that desktop-based discrete graphics card products are not affected by the issue.”

nVIDIA is really having a lousy month, with anti-trust suits going badly and the ever persistent rumour that something is horribly wrong with their G84 and G86’s. nVIDIA’s position is that the problem can only occur in specific laptop configurations, but really haven’t clarified the exact nature of the problem and why it will not apply to graphics cards. DigiTimes has heard that as a result, many vendors are demanding a recall of all theoretically affected graphics cards.
