TSMC to make CPUs for AMD?

Posted on Monday, September 22 2008 @ 22:09:08 CEST by

Asian news sources claim TSMC as won a contract to produce CPUs for AMD. The article isn't very specific, but my guess is that TSMC will manufacture a 40nm graphics part for AMD's Fusion processor.
Some foreign institutional investors recently said Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) has won foundry contracts to make central processing units (CPUs) for Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), the world`s No.2 computer-microprocessor supplier second only to Intel Inc.

They said the volume production would begin at the end of the second quarter next year and run with 40-nanometer process. The contracts, they added, would give a boost to the world`s No.1 silicon foundry`s revenue.

In reaction to the reports, TSMC`s executives haven`t made any comments, simply saying pursing CPU contracts has been one of the company`s plans. Industry watchers said the contracts coming in economic meltdown reflected TSMC`s unmatched technology and manufacturing service.
