Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD) yesterday said that it is using Taiwan Semiconductor
Manufacturing Co’s (TSMC, 台積電) advanced 7-nanometer technology to produce a new series of high-performance processors for desktop computers and new processors for gaming PCs, consoles and cloud devices, which would enter the market in July.
The company unveiled its third-generation high-performance Ryzen desktop processor and Radeon graphics chips, both made using TSMC’s 7-nanometer technology, at the Computex Taipei.
The company used to rely on GlobalFoundries Inc for chips.
However, the US firm in August last year said that it would indefinitely put on hold its development of 7-nanometer technology and technologies beyond that, making TSMC the sole foundry for AMD’s processors. [FULL STORY]
