RELIABLE SOURCES tell me – and AMD refuses to comment on the rumor so far – that Abu Dhabi money is about to save its fab bacon.
This move, if and when it happens, will relieve AMD of a pile of debts it owes, and give it the space, time and money to open a new fab in Malta, New York State, because the company have plans to go for that, big time.
We contacted AMD repeatedly about this story. So far they haven’t got back to me. It would be a coup, although Arabian money might not necessarily go down well in New York State. Asset Lite? µ
