AMD to build new 65nm fab

Posted on Monday, November 10 2003 @ 18:42:14 CET by

The Inquirer tells us that AMD is planning to build a new 65nm fab. Possibly locations are New York or Singapore. But other suggestions for the site like Austin Texas and Desden aren't out of the question.

  AMD boss Hector Ruiz told analysts last week that the company had already chosen a preferred site for the new fab and hopes to "break ground" on the facility before the end of the year. He remained tight-lipped over further details of the project, however.

AMD is likely to have a partner in mind with which to share the cost of setting up the fab. The usual contenders include IBM and Taiwanese manufacturer TSMC.

In the meantime, AMD plans to refresh its entire product line during 2004, according to Dirk Meyer, senior veep of AMD's Computation Products group. "You're not going to see any big product launches from AMD in 2004, rather, you're going to see the fruits of the harvest we planted earlier," he said.

A new fab would take about two years to build.
