AMD plans to pay TSMC, GF and other suppliers $6.5 billion upfront


According to DigiTimes, industry sources say AMD has been gaining market share in laptop, desktop and server processors after contracting with TSMC to produce flagship processors. As Intel, NVIDIA and other giants have negotiated a large number of orders with TSMC, in order to seize TSMC’s advanced process capacity, AMD reported in its quarterly report that the company must pay a total of $6.5 billion in advance payments to suppliers such as TSMC and GlobalFoundries.


It is reported that AMD has launched a series of 6nm CPU and GPU products since 2022, and TSMC is its only foundry partner. Thanks to its close collaboration with TSMC, AMD expects to launch a new generation of processors built on TSMC’s 5nm process technology as early as September.


According to previous reports, AMD announced the Ryzen 7000 product line, the desktop model codenamed Raphael (Raphael), supports DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0, and consumes 65W+.


By next year, AMD has also planned the Dragon Range, a high-performance mobile family, for gaming notebooks with a thickness of more than 20mm, the DP power consumption will be increased to 55W+, it also supports DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0, and the number of cores is 16+.


It can be seen that AMD is intensively planning its chip product line and supply, and its production capacity must keep up, so it spends a lot of money to book TSMC’s foundry services.
