AMD will be creating future products with Samsung as well as Global Foundries

 

AMD will be creating future products with Samsung as well as Global Foundries, allowing them to utilise the 14nm process collaboration in order to build products at both foundries as needed. 

This was discovered when AMD was asked where they are building their most of their hardware by Patrick Moorhead, an industry analyst. It seems that AMD is making the bulk of their new 14nm products at Glabalfoundries, but they have the hardware and the ability to produce their chips with Samsung if required. 

 

        AMD has strong foundry partnerships and our primary manufacturing partners are GLOBALFOUNDRIES and TSMC.

We have run some product at Samsung and we have the option of enabling production with Samsung if needed as part of the strategic collaboration agreement they have with GLOBALFOUNDRIES to deliver 14nm FinFET process technology capacity.

Samsung and Globalfoundries utilise very similar processing technologies for 14nm, with Globalfoundries licensing Samsung's 14nm technology. This means that products that are produced with Globalfoundries, allowing designs to be easily transferred between both foundries if required. 

The ability to build hardware with both Samsung and Globalfoundries gives AMD some much-needed versatility, as well as the ability to call on additional foundry space from Samsung if it is required. We already know that AMD is making their Polaris GPUs on the 14nm process, as well as their upcoming Zen CPUs and APUs, so having the ability to call on two foundries for production is a great move on AMD's part.
