AMD not interested in adding new foundry partner

Posted on Wednesday, December 02 2009 @ 17:23:25 CET by

AMD Graphics Product Group senior VP and general manager Rick Bergman said his company is not considering to add a third foundry partner to alleviate supply issues, Bergman confirmed AMD will continue to rely on its partnerships with GlobalFoundries and TSMC.
Since the third quarter of 2009 AMD GPUs have been facing shortages. Digitimes reported in November that the shortage of ATI Radeon 5000-series GPUs is due to low yields on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC's) 40nm process, while shortages of ATI Radeon 4000-series GPUs were due to AMD's conservative attitude toward its 55nm GPU sales after the launch of 40nm products. The shortages are expected to cause PC vendors to delay their related products to the first quarter of 2010.
Bergman also revealed AMD is planning to ramp up its chipset business, he said the final goal is to capture the full 100 percent of the AMD platform market. NVIDIA currently has about 43 percent of this market, but unfortunately for the green company the comment by Bergman suggests AMD intends to follow Intel's footsteps to drive NVIDIA out of the chipset business.
