Following NVIDIA's announcement of a US $150M to $200M package towards covering anticipated warranty, repair, return, replacement and other costs and expenses relating to faulty 'packaging material', suppliers in Taiwan have gone low-key on the issue.

By 'packaging material', they don't mean 'packaging' as in the logistics, but 'packaging' as in electronics, a package simply put is a ceramic or plastic enclosure in which is embedded a chip (die) with tiny wirings connecting parts of the chip to an interface on one side, be it an array of pins or solder balls. Unlike CPUs, graphics processors are connected to the circuit boards using ball grid arrays.
