ABSTRACT
The article deals with the possibility that the relationship between microprocessor maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and semiconductor foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) will be expanded. Tim Luke of Lehman Brothers released a research note implying that TSMC may begin pilot production of non mainstream microprocessor products in 2008. Luke said that the products will initially target 65-nm nodes. He added that TSMC is also working on developing an integrated MPU and GPU offering with AMD.
