AMD Fab39/40 may be built in Dresden

WHEN WE VISITED AMD's Saxony complex consisting of Fab30 and Fab36 recently, we saw a lot of space for expansion. Space owned by AMD. Indeed, AMD has room to build not just one more fab there, but up to fourfFabs at the same place.

I can see Intels hold on the CPU market a little shakey in years to come. This is starting to solve in my opinion the biggest issue with mainstream use and acceptance of AMD chips in the pc world. Lack of quantity. With this new fab facility producing revenue now and room for expansion in the form of 4 more fab plants this would definately make AMD a more viable alternative for the big package pc makers. In turn giving AMD the revenue it needs to start offering better PRICED chips. I believe this is a good omen as its gonna force intels hand to come with the goods. No more B.S. crap like netbust (I ment to spell it that way ty). This is just my opinion in terms of how this is gonna bode for the consumer end. If im not mistaken the only real knock on AMD has been lack of capacity. This may be comming to an end real soon.

Yeah, but how about starting to manufacture their own chip-set? Till then my only choice will always be Intel (but.....). nVidia makes a lousy job at it when I compare it to Intel's Core Logics.

In a way I sort of like the fact that nVidia is ditching C19 for the AM2 set-up, I may end up giving another thought on building an AMD system with the C51XE. But it all depends on how the reviews go, not in terms of performance but mechnical.

Considering that adding 4 FABs to AMD production wouldn't even scratch the surface of Intel Production capability. Saying that Intel is losing the market in the processor sector when they are coming out with 45nm Quad Core in Q1 2007 and AMD will just be spinning of 65nm Dual core.... The Core technology beats AMD power consumption and blows away it performance, not to talk about the low cost. In reality, AMD is headed into some shakey quaters. But let me assure you, they will fire back, and the cycle will continue.
