Tahiti - TSMC 28nm HP
Pitcairn - TSMC 28nm HPL

Real or not, TSMC has been rumored to have issues with 28nm for awhile now.
So stopped or not, if its real and it means that they will have a much better yield in producing the GPUs, it will be a blessing, as once Nvidia brings out they GPUs, prices will go lower.

You assume that prices are directly based on costs, which is obviously a fallacy, because of the importance of the competitive environment.

The only thing we know for certain is that we will have to wait longer

It's not only nVidia that is having yield issues on 28nm. I read that Qualcomm has yield issues too. Also in my first post in this thread there's a link where 6 out of 10 clients claim to have yield issues with TSMC's 28nm process.

That'd explain why Tahiti's disappearing from shelves while everything else seems to be plentiful.

And how did you get from what I wrote that its based on cost?
Don't assume that you assumed right. Better read it again.
