TSMC and UMC getting more orders from AMD

Posted on Friday, March 20 2009 @ 00:15:21 CET by


DigiTimes reports Taiwanese foundries TSMC and UMC have received a combined order of 30,000 12-inch equivalent wafers for new AMD processors which will arrive in the second quarter of the year, including the 55nm RV790 and 40nm RV740. The site says the 12-inch fabs from TSMC and UMC will likely climb back to an utilization rate of 60-70 percent in the second quarter.
According to the paper, AMD ordered less than 2,000 wafers for January and February, but the volume has doubled to 4,000-5,000 units this month. The graphics chip vendor is expected to place orders of 8,000-9,000 wafers with its Taiwan-based contract chipmakers for April, and the volume will climb to 10,000 units in May and June.

The paper also indicated that TSMC and UMC have brought back all employees to their 12-inch production lines, as well as further shortening compulsory unpaid leave.
