AMD contemplates additional chip outsourcing

Sat Feb 23 2008, 10:53

Bloomberg said the move could happen in the next few months as way of avoiding more capital expenditure, quoting AMD rep Drew Prairie. He said that it already shares testing with IBM, and wants to do similar things with manufacturing.

This is all part of CEO Hector Ruiz’ “asset light” strategy, a strategy that is certainly detail light, as he refuses to explain what it means. µ
