One more thing we didn't know before about AMD's Radeon R9 Fury series is that these Fiji-based chips are assembled in South Korea. While the 28nm GPU itself is made by either TSMC or GlobalFoundries, the entire package is assembled by SK Hynix, the supplier of the High Bandwidth Memory (HBM).
I have to admit, it feels quite strange to realize that the first ever AMD chip to carry the “Made in Korea” tag actually has nothing to do with the Korean giant Samsung. But is rather the result of AMD’s memory supplier SK Hynix. It feels even stranger that the memory supplier would put its stamp on the chip, that is until you dig a little bit deeper.
What’s actually happening behind the curtain is that AMD would send each known good Fiji die, i.e. fully functional Fiji chip, to SK Hynix. Who would then proceed to add the stacked memory modules, assemble the package and ship it back. This would ensure that every single Fiji + HBM package that AMD receives would have fully functional memory chips.
