Chartered talks about 32nm, AMD

Posted on Thursday, October 09 2008 @ 01:37:56 CEST by

Kevin Meyer, Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing vice president of industry marketing and platform alliances, talked about AMD's plan to spin off its fabs and the progress on 32nm. AMD is Chartered's second largest customer, but Meyer remains positive and hopes AMD's new strategy will help "grow the pie" for the group's process technologies.
AMD was Chartered's second largest customer last year as a second source for silicon-on-insulator technology. In a video interview, Meyer suggested the AMD shift could lead to the company shifting its graphics processors to the Common Platform processes.

Both Meyer and ARM Ltd. chief executive Warren East talked about the benefits of the coming 32nm process technology in keynotes at the ARM Developer's Conference here.

East said 32 nm will yield low power processors running at more than a GHz and CPUs running at more than 2 GHz at full power. Meyer said 32nm will deliver 1.7 times the performance of the 45nm process at same power or 2.8 times its performance at twice the power level.

"When you put your foot on the gas, this baby's gonna go," said Meyer.
