NVIDIA is on a roll. After CES shares of NVIDIA jumped as every tablet for 2011 seems to run on NVIDIA's Tegra 2. Additionally NVIDIA and Intel settled their patent issues with a windfall for NVIDIA. Today NVIDIA announced that together with TSMC they shipped the one-billionth GeForce graphics processor designed by NVIDIA and manufactured by TSMC.

The number Billion is still quite impressive in the tech world. In the financial world a billion is peanuts these days. The milestone for NVIDIA was reached within 12 years. It's amazing that we've already been using NVIDIA chips in our PCs for that long.

"Since inventing the GPU more than a decade ago, NVIDIA has driven innovation in these processors at a rate virtually unmatched in the technology industry," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer, NVIDIA. "With our close partnership with TSMC, the complexity of these devices has increased more than 1000 times, enabling enormous progress in computers ranging from handhelds and PCs to workstations and data centers."
