AMD to outsource Fusion production to TSMC and Chartered?

Posted on Tuesday, August 05 2008 @ 23:20:31 CEST by


Trading Market speculates AMD may outsource the production of the CPU part of the Fusion processor to Chartered while the GPU part may be made by TSMC:
AMD's Fusion processor is a new-generation processor integrating image display chips. Its GPU will be made by 55-nano meter technics. Its CPU, which will be produced with SOI technics, will be made with Fab 36 and Fab 38 technics or CSM's 45- nano meter technics3. Assembling CPU and GPU makes the Fusion processor.

To lower supply risk, Amd proposed an Asset-Light Strategy and jointly promoted FlexFab plan with CSM, TSMC and Taiwan-based United Macroelectronics Corporation (UMC). Some main board manufacturers think it will add more OEMs to react to price competition of Intel.

AMD's CPU and GPU are both using 65-nano meter technics. It plans to use 55-nano meter technics for GPU and 45-nano meter technics for CPU in large scale in 2008 and begin 32-nano meter technics in 2009 and 22-nano meter technics in 2011.
