TSMC to make 45nm AMD Fusion chips

Posted on Wednesday, Jul 25 2007 @ 00:05 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
JP Morgan analysts believe TSMC has signed a contract with AMD for the production of 45nm AMD Fusion processors:
The report added that AMD is now field testing the bulk-silicon based CPUs.

JPMorgan projects that TSMC can further expand its technology to CPU manufacturing in the first quarter of 2008 after this field qualification is completed, though any meaningful sales contribution should only be seen in late 2008 or early 2009. Long-term speaking, the equity firm believes that TSMC will have a role to play in next generation game machine CPU manufacturing.
