AMD opens new R&D facility in India

By Justin Mann on November 30, 2007, 8:45 PM
This week, AMD announced that they are increasing their global presence with the introduction of more R&D facilities. In particular, a new center has been opened in India focusing on silicon design and other research.

The Bangalore facility is in response to an increasing number of employees in that region, justifying a new center. This is actually quite interesting – AMD, a company teetering in their competition against Intel, who has already shelled out ample amounts of cash the past few years, is expanding. Is this a good thing for AMD?

This facility will play a key part in the development of their 45nm linep, such as their first 45nm quad-core processor which has been named “Shanghai”. You can read the full press release at AMD's site.
