TSMC to post strong Q4 earnings

Written by


On the back of AMD GPU and APU orders
As we reported last week, TSMC is expected to report strong earnings for the fourth quarter thanks to large orders placed by AMD.

However, it's worth noting that AMD has placed orders for Ontario and Zacate APUs alongside HD 6000 GPUs. Both Ontario and Zacate are reportedly already in production, on TSMCs 40nm node. The Ontario will take on Intel's Atom processors in the netbook market and judging by the specs it should have no trouble wiping the floor with any Atom SKU.

Although AMD contracted Globalfoundries to produce the 32nm Llano APU, the company decided to go with TSMC's tried and tested 40nm process for Ontario and Zacate in order to mitigate production risks. All APUs produced by TSMC will be tested and packaged by Siliconware Precision Industries.

eeeh maybe it had somethig to do with TSMC scrapping the 32nm node going straight to 28 nm XD

ot: good to hear they have started production,
cant wait for the thing to appear in stores!

Looks like Amd will make profit.

TSMC's process sucks, everything about them sucks. Just hope AMD uses GloFo for their next-gen Fusion chip.

A family member's HP laptop has been having trouble with an overheating Nvidia video card that has apparently damaged the LCD screen. They can still use it however I told them to wait just a little longer before shelling out $500 for a new laptop...boy is it going to be worth the wait!
