AMD May Use Samsung to Produce Chips

Posted by at 9:28 am on December 23, 2015

The talk around the watercooler includes a rumor that AMD may use Samsung to produce at least some of their 14nm chips in the coming year. This is based on A report in South Korea’s Electronic Times, which cited unknown sources, said that Samsung Electronics will start making new chips for AMD sometime next year.

If true this has been a huge year for Samsung who produce NVIDIA chips as well as recently picking up a contract with Apple to produce some of their A9 SoCs. The rumour still includes GLOBALFOUNDRIES as a source for APUs and GPUs so this would make Samsung a second source for working silicon, which we can hope will alleviate some of AMD’s difficulty in maintaining supplies of products.

This could also help fund Samsung’s development of their 10nm FinFET node which the claim should be in production by the end of 2016. As always, take the rumour for what it is but if you want to learn more about what is being said you can pop over to The Inquirer.
