The new venture, which will make chips for AMD and other companies, will take over facilities that include large AMD factories in Germany, with funding provided by investment entities associated with the government of Abu Dhabi, these people said. They will contribute cash to the venture as well."The fact of the matter is most semiconductor manufacturers operate under an outsourced fabrication model like this and there is an excellent business case for the obvious cost efficiencies of not having to maintain your own fabrication lines and drive costly, bleeding-edge process technologies. AMD will join the ranks of NVIDIA and many others with this new model, if it comes to pass (which it certainly does look very likely). With the current economic conditions, we think they're definitely making the right move. More details to come after our press webcast briefing tomorrow morning.
News:AMD will join the ranks of NVIDIA and many others with this new model, if it comes to pass (which it certainly does look very likely).
I am aware that Nvidia has had some problems of late, and I have to wonder if this is a wise move for AMD. Anyone?
SPAM-posters beware! ®
Great... now Intel has that much less incentive to improve their fabrication process, instead of making profit on the status quo. :(
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
maybe this will be good for AMD. Let someone else build them and all they have to worry about is research and marketing.
Its probably a good move on AMD,s part because of the cost effectiveness and put more cash into research! Too bad they dont outsource to the United States and produce them here.Just might breathe into the US economy! Hey we have a BMW plant 20 miles from where I live we also Have several tech companies here also. Ah well just a Plug for the US!
