AMD and ASMedia enter chipset technology deal

ASMedia announced it has signed a deal with AMD, but no details where disclosed other than that the companies are working on a next-generation chipset project. DigiTimes notes AMD previously outsourced R&D to ASMedia to save costs and speculates ASMedia will now be designing entire chipsets for AMD.
In May, Digitimes reported that AMD planned to establish the partnership with ASMedia by having the Taiwan-based IC design house share its SATA Express silicon intellectual property (SIP) or by having AMD acquire licenses from ASMedia.

However, the partnership has advanced further with an outsourcing of R&D for the whole chipset. Since most PC chipset functionality has already been integrated into the CPU, outsourcing chipset R&D to ASMedia should help AMD save costs and resources and allow the CPU maker to focus on developing APU and semi-customized products.
