AMD are splitting 7nm Zen 2 CPU and Vega GPU manufacturing between TSMC and GloFo


AMD CEO Lisa Su has stated that AMD will be using two separate foundries to produce the chips sporting their upcoming 7nm process. In an interview with Anandtech, Su says that both GlobalFoundries and TSMC will be providing the precious silicon required for AMD’s future tech lineup, starting with the 7nm Vega GPU launching later this year.

AMD once incorporated the manufacturing arm of what is now known as GlobalFoundries – which was split from the company back in 2009. As a result of this special relationship, AMD tend to rely on the foundry for most of their semiconductor needs, including their Polaris GPU architecture, Vega architecture, and Ryzen processors.
