The Inquirer reports about AMD's official opening of Fab 36 in Dresden, Germany. This new fab doubles AMD's chip capacity.
IBM will move into more SKUs using AMD chips in 2006, claimed Ruiz. Microsoft’s support had been incredibly important. The launch of Vista 64 will have a big impact on AMD.
Fab 36 will double AMD’s chip capacity, said Ruiz. Fab 30 will continue to build microprocessors, may build chipsets and it’s not out of the question that AMD might upgrade the Fab 30 technology. He said AMD will be able to fully utilize the factory for some years to come.
