[Yahoo Finance - Market WIRED] AMD Amends Wafer Supply Agreement With GLOBALFOUNDRIES

These purchases contemplate AMD's current PC market expectations and the manufacturing of certain Graphics Processor Units (GPUs) and semi-custom game console products at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in 2014.

What do you think about this?
I myself think that going with these take or pay deals is not a good idea but I'm on the other hand sure that AMD can fullfil it this time due to them moving 14nm there and 28nm.

The source hints at AMD moving GPU and console chips there 1.2 Billion is a lot of chips so it sounds plausible that we will be seeing console chips and our new 20nm gpus coming from GloFo.

Wonder when we will get info on more exact plans. Or how this impacts TSMC.

It may very well be the case that AMD is moving next gen GPUs to GloFo 20nm FD-SOI

Apparently TSMC is pretty much completely booked

And I doubt AMD and Nvidia's next gen GPUs are part of it right now. If AMD has GloFo all to themselves they could have a big edge over Nvidia as long as GloFo doesn't screw up and delay as they often do.
