AMD ponders the fate of a new factory in New York
According to a source citing the Albany Times Union, AMD has not yet made a final decision on the construction of a factory in the United States designed to work with 300 mm plates.
Quoting AMD, the publication cites the following words: “Whether to continue the project or not, it is necessary to decide before July 2021.”. The fact is that in July 2021 the validity period of the offer of incentive compensation in the amount of 1.2 billion will end. Doll., proposed by the state.
The total cost of construction, according to available data, is 3.5 billion. Doll. For the first time, plans for the possible construction of the mentioned AMD factory became known last year. The proposed construction site is the Luther Forest Technology Park in Saratoga County, in the north of the state.
So far, the fate of construction remains unclear, as the company is known to be carrying out a restructuring program, part of which is placing more orders at the facilities of contract semiconductor manufacturers. In particular, we recall that the Fusion processor will be produced in parts: AMD and Chartered Semiconductor will make the CPU, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) – the GPU. In addition, to reduce costs, it was decided to slow down the rollout of AMD’s new production facility in Dresden.
