GF Yields Doubled for AMD
AMD and GlobalFoundries made a major announcement today. AMD's Roy Read commended GF for "doubling of yields on 32nm". AMD will also use GF's 28nm HKMG processes, which "are qualified and ready for design-in today."
GF's FAB1 (former Dresden FAB of AMD) can now output 80,000 wafers per month.
That kind of capacity ought to be enough quench the APU thirst of Apple, HP, Lenovo, HP, Acer and others.
