  1. Manufacturing bombshell: AMD cancels 28nm APUs, starts from scratch at TSMC


    The implications and financial repercussions could be enormous. Moving 28nm APUs from GlobalFoundries to TSMC means scrapping the existing designs and laying out new parts using gate-last rather than gate-first manufacturing. AMD may try to mitigate the damage by doing a straightforward 28nm die shrink of existing Ontario/Zacate products.



    Somehow, things are getting far worse at AMD than what I initially thought (if this story is true).
