Would this benefit AMD in some way?

qwertyhbnmdoesn't emit as much light as the red & green ones, so Samsung has to make it significantly larger to partially compensate.


hmm

Not much since they are moving away from GlobalFoundries after the many screw ups from them. They do have a few things they still make from AMD though.

It would be cheaper to just go to 22nm and double the die on wafer!

"Fab 8 will be fully operational in mid-2012 and shipping products for revenue in early 2013. With high volume production in full swing in early 2013..."

That's 60k wafer-starts a month at 28/22nm.

I was under impression that GlobalFoundaries was facing some business trouble, but I guess that wasn't the case.

3 ways business can go, roll over and die (no pun intended), tighten belts and potentially get absorbed by someone bigger or try to build out of it
...
Seems they are trying option 3, this will be interesting to watch

Pumping cash into expanding operations is not an issue for Abu Dhabi.

At one time there were discussions of building another new Fab, this one in the UAE, by 2015. Not sure where they went with those plans -- my only concern would be in how they planned to staff it.

ProMOS Technologies presumably manufactures AMD DRAM.

And as long as AMD uses SOI slices in their sandwiches (which will be quite sometime), GloFlo will be "On board."
