Globalfoundries denied a recent rumor that AMD may be working on six-core and twelve-core microprocessors made on a 45nm SOI HKMG process:
“We have no HKMG process at 40/45nm SOI or Bulk. The statement in our brochure is related to us introducing products using HKMG technology into our fab in Q1. We are not specifying who (as we have multiple customers that have lined up to support our HKMG technology) or what products (or exact process variant) at this time. HKMG is focused on 32nm/28nm generations,” said Jon Carvill, the head of public relations at Globalfoundries.
