AMD 65nm production from Chartered to start in June

Posted on Thursday, March 30 2006 @ 21:39:28 CEST by

In June AMD can expect the first 65nm processors from Chartered Semiconductor's 300mm Fab7, according to Forbes.
Originally when the foundry deal was made official last year, Hector Ruiz, AMD's Chairman, stated that production of its microprocessors at Fab7 would begin late in 2006 and would be on a qualified compatible 65nm process.

At the opening of AMD's first 300mm facility (Fab 36) in Dresden, Germany late last year Ruiz remarked that production at Chartered would be brought forward due to the demand for its 64bit MPU's but declined to be more specific.

According to the Forbes report, Chartered expects to be able to ramp Fab7 to 18,000wspm (wafer starts per month) by the end of 2006, doubling its current monthly output.
