AMD CEO confirms first Fusion chip will be made on 32nm SOI process

Posted on Friday, October 16 2009 @ 20:58:42 CEST by

AMD CEO Dirk Meyer said during the company's earning call on Thursday that the first Fusion processors will be made using 32nm SOI process technology. The first Fusion processor from AMD is Llano, this product is expected to arrive in 2011.
“We will have CPUs, so-called Fusion parts, on 32nm SOI in the next-generation and the bulk CMOS [fabrication process] we are evaluating for subsequent generation. […] For the generations beyond 32nm, we are evaluating our choices, as we do for every generation,” said Dirk Meyer, chief executive officer of AMD, during a conference call with financial analysts.

At present AMD’s central processing units (CPUs) are made using SOI process technology at Globalfoundries, a joint venture between AMD and Advanced Technology Investment Company, whereas the company’s ATI Radeon graphics processing units (GPUs) are produced utilizing bulk technology at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. In order to fit a Radeon HD 5000-class graphics core into the same piece of silicon with a CPU, AMD will have to redesign the GPU.
