AMD told investors during yesterday's earnings call that it had no problems with the 28nm process and that supply of 28nm GPUs in the first quarter met demand. Full details at X-bit Labs.
Despite of many criticism surrounding slow ramp of 28nm process technology capacities at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, one of its major customers Advanced Micro Devices said that it had managed to meet the demand for graphics processing units (GPUs) made at 28nm node in Q1 of FY2012. The company still noted that it would like to get more 28nm chips.
"We were able to meet customer demand [for AMD Radeon HD 7000 "Southern Islands" chips made using 28nm fabrication process] in the first quarter. The products are good, the demand is strong. We would like to have more access to the upside volume, but we have met pretty much all the demand in the first quarter," said Thomas Seiffert, chief financial officer of AMD, during quarterly conference call with financial analysts.
