Yay! Bring on the small transistors. Anything that helps lower power consumption is always welcome.
Given that TSMC's 40mn chips for ATI and Nvidia have fallen flat on their power hungry arses, I'd say Global Foundaries have a good future. I wouldn't be surprised if ATI or Nvidia (if not both) use them for their next die size.
I see good things in the future for GF. And the split couldn't have come at a better time, what with TMSC's recent serious of disasters.
wow it looks like AMD made a great move splitting out the foundry. Bravo!
Hmmm, so if GF-FAB1 was AMD-FAB36...is the expansion the move back adding the old FAB30*?

So that's what the AMD building near my house (in Singapore) does?
GloFo bougt two manufacturers... AMD (two Dresden/Germany plants and one in building process in upstate New York) and Chartered Semiconductors Manufacturing in Singapore. AMD also had dicing, testing and packaging facilities all over SE-Asia.
