The problem is that Spansion makes NOR flash memory, not NAND flash memory. I'm no expect on the pros and cons between NOR and NAND but one of the biggest obstacles of NOR is that it is much more expensive than NAND. There is not a whole lot of consumers who is going to want to pay several times more for a SSD with NOR if they don't know the difference between the two.

Global Foundries probably has the capability to start fabing memory ICs...maybe they already do make them. So AMD could start paying them to make chips and AMD could turn into a genuine memory manufacturer. However, with memory relatively cheap these days I think they'd be stupid not to just buy something that was complete from some other company and slap an AMD sticker on it.

However, I am pretty sure that AMD was making flash memory ICs a few years ago...maybe even regular memory too...but that part got sold off in like 2005 or something. So maybe they are bringing it back.
Except GF and AMD have split. AMD will be using tsmc now I believe or maybe I missed something

AMD should really go into the branded PSU business. Their FX chips are prodigious power-guzzlers, so selling high-wattage PSUs would be like making lemonade out of their CPU lemons...
