“ ROBERT RIVET, chief financial officer of AMD, spoke at the Goldman Sachs technology investment symposium 2005 and gave a fair amount of details on its process plans.
AMD is on track to produce 65 nanometre processors, he said. While he said that Intel is clearly behind AMD on 64-bit technology, AMD won’t be that far behind the firm on the move to 65 nanometre.
Reliable sources inside Intel claim Intel has already got 65 nanometre versions of its chips taped up and running at its development fabs.
He said that AMD’s Fab 30 in Dresden will be in full 90 nanometre production by June. Its deal with Chartered Semi will come on line at the end of this year, or the beginning of next, in cooperation with IBM.”
