AMD To Outsource Fusion Production?
AMD may have signed on with TSMC to outsource production of their upcoming Fusion technology. At present it seems that Fusion will be produced on TSMC’s 45nm process.
“JPMorgan projects that TSMC can further expand its technology to CPU manufacturing in the first quarter of 2008 after this field qualification is completed, though any meaningful sales contribution should only be seen in late 2008 or early 2009. Long-term speaking, the equity firm believes that TSMC will have a role to play in next generation game machine CPU manufacturing.”
Little is known about Fusion except that it is a technology that is supposed to blend the features of a CPU and a GPU.
