AMD Zone kreeg dit interessante mailtje toegestuurd van een informant bij Motorola, over de G4e (codenaam Nitro - zie deze eerdere posting van vandaag) en de nauwe samenwerking tussen AMD en Motorola bij de ontwikkeling van deze proc:
Would have loved to break this news to you and everyone else back in Jan. when we started the production ramp, but it's been under pretty tight wraps. Since it was leaked, I feel I can comment and add one or two more "goodies" for ya!
Incredibly accurate, surprised they didn't mention copper though (maybe it is assumed with these two companies working together).[edit: I DID assume it. It IS copper]
Back in January on one of my first ever posts mentioned an AMD/MOT golf polo shirt being distributed at the Campuses, guess what it has on it? NITRO, an AMD/MOT collaboration.
While AMD has never formally announced a Dresden partner, that doesn't mean two companies aren't CURRENTLY using the same FAB space under an informal partnership.
The last little tidbit I'll add is this, if AMD is helping MOT with its future(G4e), could MOT be helping AMD with its future (well, I'll let you keep guessing)? (I have seen the "future" for both these companies, and I'm glad they make up over 80% of my current portfolio.)-motman
