AMD and Samsung will become even closer. Some future products of the first company may be launched by the second
As AMD admitted, the shortage of its new generation video cards will last at least until the end of the current half of the year, and some analysts believe that even longer.
Apparently, neither AMD nor Nvidia have any options for a drastic way out of the situation. However, this does not mean that companies are not thinking about the future. According to the source, AMD in the near future may start producing its products at Samsung facilities. Recall that modern solutions from AMD are produced by TSMC, and older ones by GlobalFoundries. Samsung may already offer 8nm process technology, and in the future, even more subtle technical processes.
AMD is considering handing over to Samsung for lower-end solutions such as APUs or FPGAs. There are no details yet, but AMD’s intentions are quite logical, given that there are only a few companies with advanced technological processes on the market.
