Entry-level AMD Fusion processor to be made by TSMC?

Posted on Monday, Feb 26 2007 @ 19:31 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
According to Goldman Sachs analysts AMD is having two teams working on the development of the AMD Fusion processor.

One team is focusing on using SOI (silicon on insulator) for the high-end market while the other team is developing the chip for bulk entry-level chip manufacturing at TSMC.
AMD will continue its corporation with Charted Semiconductor for processing on SOI while TSMC may get OEM orders for the processor if the bulk development goes well, reported the paper. If AMD decides to launch only SOI-based processors, however, then Charted Semiconductor will be the only company to benefit from the development, noted the paper.
