AMD's 1st Revenue Shipments of AMD64 Products Made at Chartered

AMD says it began its first revenue shipments of AMD64 processors produced at Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing in Singapore in June. AMD and Chartered ramped 300mm production at Fab 7 in record time, hitting all major milestones and starting production at mature yields. Initial shipments out of Chartered consisted of microprocessors manufactured on 90nm process technology. The ramp of volume production at Chartered combined with recent announcements in Dresden shows that AMD will have the ability to intelligently scale and flex production in line with customer demand.

AMD and Chartered has originally signed an agreement in late 2004 which called for volume production of AMD64 products in the 2nd half of 2006. AMD with this announcement has once again demonstrated a track-record of flawless execution and on-time delivery in manufacturing to provide additional flex capacity for its customers. AMD will continue to enhance operations at Chartered with a planned transition to 65nm process technology in mid-2007.
