Globalfoundries denied rumors about issues with its 32nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process technology. Jon Carvill, vice president of global communications at Globalfoundries, revealed the foundry is making good progress and that AMD's plans to ship products to customers 1H 2011 remain on track.
"We have absolutely made no changes to our 32nm guidance. We are making good progress and our ramp is on track support AMD's plans to ship product to customers 1H 2011," said Jon Carvill, vice president of global communications at Globalfoundries.
Back in early November it was reported citing unofficial sources that AMD would start production of its desktop microprocessors with Bulldozer micro-architecture sometime in April '11, whereas mass production of code-named Llano accelerated processing units (APUs) for desktops and mobiles will commence in July '11. Sometimes in May or June the company is also expected to begin manufacturing of server-class processors based on Bulldozer micro-architecture.
