Samsung to make chips for AMD

AMD logoA South Korean newspaper reported that Samsung’s semiconductor division will manufacture processors for AMD in 2016 using 14 nanometre technology.

AMD’s own semiconductor manufacturing was sold several years ago and is now called GlobalFoundries (GloFo).

GloFo as well as Taiwanese company TSMC currently make CPUs and GPUs for AMD.

But, according to the Korean newspaper, Electronic Times, GloFo won’t be ruled out of the equation and will work together with Samsung to produce the semiconductors.

Samsung already manufactures chips for other firms including Nvidia and Apple.
