AMD's Foundry Company to make GPUs in late 2009

Posted on Wednesday, October 08 2008 @ 00:07:32 CEST by

FUD Zilla claims AMD's fabs in Dresden, Germany, will start churning out ATI GPUs in late 2009. Currently the fabs are still part of AMD, but if everything goes well they will be part of the new Foundry Company by early 2009.
Dresden is completely focused on IMB’s Silicon on Insulator (SOI), while graphics and Intel’s CPUs are producing bulk silicon in High or Low – K process. In order for AMD to start making its own GPUs they need to make some factory changes to produce bulk and this will happen through 2009.

A head of communications at Foundry Co. Jon Carvill, has just confirmed that these adjustments will take place through 2009 and that AMD will be able to start production of bulk silicon by early 2010. Realistically this indicates a full ramp production will start in 2010 and that as of 2010 The Foundry Company will be in competition with its old friend TSMC for ATI GPUs.
