AMD and MediaTek reportedly in talks to form JV This joint venture that will be dedicated to developing SoC chips combining Wi-Fi, 5G and high transmission technologies for notebooks. This wouldn't be mobile graphics like some are reporting!$AMD$MRVL$AVGO$INTC$QCOMpic.twitter.com/dypZ9LBk1H
Nan Ya PCB is set to commercialize new ABF substrate capacity by the end of 2021 and will scale up its output substantially for AMD's processors in the second quarter of 2022, which is expected to help the US chipmaker significantly drive up its shipments.
ABF = Ajinomoto Bonding Fluid. used for stacking 3D chips. Notice $INTC is not mentioned. You cannot stack monolithic 450 Watt ovens.
ABF is used mostly for GPU and servers and APUs. AMD targets super computers, servers, and thin light notebooks.
Notice the whole Island of Taiwan is supporting their favorite lady, Doctor Lisa Su. Taiwan can replace Intel.
Intel has a new business plan under Pat 'the mouth' Gelsinger. Intel plans to build low margin auto parts. That's the plan. No customers yet. Yugo is negotiating.
The $35 billion acquisition of Xilinx ( XLNX+1.6%) by Advanced Micro Devices ( AMD+1.2%) is spurring calls for behavioral remedies in China, according to news service MLex.Industry players are raising flags over downstream applications of field-programmable gate arrays - FPGA, where Xilinx is in a strong position.Xilinx's FPGAs are being widely used among Chinese companies for such applications as functional verification of CPUs and application-specific integrated circuits, or ASICs.And while previous views compared the AMD-Xilinx deal to a precedent merger allowed by China - that of Intel ( INTC+1%) and Altera - new concerns focus on whether there will be continued supplies of FPGAs.Companies have expressed worries about that issue to China's State Administration for Market Regulation, MLex says. Xilinx's FPGA share in China is estimated at more than 50%, far ahead of Intel's (nearly 30%).AMD still awaits approval from China but has received antitrust clearance in the U.S. and Europe. Recently, AMD was said to have made progress in China with large third parties ready to bless the transaction.
