AMD Kaveri to use 28nm Globalfoundries process

Posted on Wednesday, March 07 2012 @ 19:05:49 CET by

Bright Side of News picked up some new details from AMD's conference call that covers the company's Wafer Supply Agreement (WSA) amendment covering 2012, you can read it over here.
There is one statement made in the Q&A section of the call on the new WSA that caught our attention:

"So with respect to SOI (Silicon On Insulator), we made statements that on 28-nanometer, all of our products will be bulk."

Also he basically confirmed, that Kaveri, the successor to Trinity is going to be manufactured at GlobalFoundries at the 28nm node:

"If you look at the roadmaps that we have presented at Financial Analyst Day, there is a 28-nanometer successor product to Trinity on the roadmap that we will ramp next year, and that is also manufactured at GLOBALFOUNDRIES."

Kaveri will integrate 2-4 Steamroller CPU cores (successor to Piledriver cores in Trinity, 3rd Generation Bulldozer core) and a GPU based on the GCN architecture. It will also provide support for HSA, which means integration of third party IP into the same die. The APU is scheduled for a 2013 launch.
