Global Foundries open to working with ARM and Nvidia

Whereas once was lost, now is foundry

AMD SPIN-OFF Global Foundries will take an "agnostic view" of the market according to its head of communications, Jon Carvill.

Carvill, talking to the INQ, noted the manufacturing firm would be open to working with the likes of Nvidia and ARM despite AMD being its first, and number-one, customer.

If all goes according to Lost and Foundry's master plan, fabless firms which have formerly had to rely on the TSMC Taiwanese monopoly will now be able to lean on the Abu Dhabi/AMD venture as a counterbalance.

"There is high confidence in the technology," he said, waxing lyrical about the company's "bleeding edge" automated precision manufacturing (APM).

Global Foundries reckons it will have an edge over TSMC by immediately starting a process technology ahead at 32nm and Carvill believes the firm will be more than capable of "serving the needs of multiple customers." µ
