AMD's new strategy: 46M CPUs in this year

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: Aug 8, 2006 12:19 am

AMD are apparently upping their desktop CPU production estimation this year to 45.83 million, this being the highest rate of production in history from them.


Overly optimistic? Given Core 2 Duo's lethal sting, this is an interesting decision by AMD.


More details over at HKEPC folks.


With the help from new Fab36, which is ready in December, and Chartered Semiconductor, AMD has raised its production estimation on desktop CPU to 45.83 million in 2006, reaching the highest point in the history of AMD. AMD is on average producing 9.76 million desktop CPUs in each of the first 2 quarters in 2006. As AMD announced before, Chartered Semiconductor will give hand to the manufacturing in Q3, raising the productivity to 11.82 million. Together with the open of Fab 36 in December, AMD would be producing 14.5 million CPUs in Q4, 34.9% higher than the first 2 quarters.
