AMD to outsource chipset development to ASMedia?

DigiTimes heard rumors that AMD is planning to outsource its PC chipset R&D to ASMedia to save costs.
Digitimes previously reported that AMD is planning to cooperate with ASMedia to integrate transmission interfaces such as SATA Express onto its next-generation platform, but the partnership may advance further with an outsourcing of the whole chipset R&D. However, since most PC chipset functionality has already been integrated into the CPU, outsourcing chipset R&D to ASMedia should help AMD save costs and resources and allows the CPU maker to focus on developing APU and semi-customized products, the sources said.

In May, Digitimes reported that AMD plans to establish the partnership with ASMedia by having the Taiwan-based IC design house share its SATA Express silicon intellectual property (SIP) or by having AMD acquire licenses from ASMedia.
