Where is all this process tech going? GLOBALFOUNDRIES: 2013 and Beyond - PCSTATS.com Where is all this process tech going? GLOBALFOUNDRIES: 2013 and Beyond
Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 10:07PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

While shoring up the 32 nm process was of extreme importance to GF, it seemingly took resources away from further developing 28 nm and below processes. While work was still being done on these products, the roadmap was far too aggressive for what they were able to accomplish. The hits just kept coming though. AMD cut back on 32 nm orders, which had a financial impact on both companies. It was cheaper for AMD to renegotiate the contract and take a penalty rather than order chips that it simply could not sell. GF then had lots of line space open on 32 nm SOI (Dresden) that could not be filled. AMD then voided another contract in which they suffered a larger penalty by opting to potentially utilize a second source for 28 nm HKMG production of their CPUs and APUs. AMD obviously was very uncomfortable about where GF was with their 28 nm process."
