[TH]China Loses Zen: AMD Halts Technology Transfers of x86 IP
It appears that AMD's unholy alliance with China-backed companies is over.
AMD CEO Lisa Su confirmed to Tom's Hardware at Computex 2019 that the company isn't licensing further chip designs to its China-backed joint venture. That means that AMD's chip-producing joint venture in China will be confined to the Zen architecture that debuted in first-gen Ryzen and EPYC Milan processors, but will not move forward with designs based on AMD's new Zen 2 microarchitecture that powers the third-gen Ryzen and EPYC Rome processors.
Well, this is disappointing but expected. This will just cause China to further develop their own chips and cause a rift between Western companies and Eastern companies. This is not good for either Intel or AMD as it could very well cause their decline.

China has stolen practically every technology it has "imported". What makes you think they had honest intentions with AMD's license?

I never understood why Americans living an easy life in a first world country with a strong judicial system have to compare their nation to third world dictatorships claiming they suffer more or are worse than them for xyz reasons. China is harvesting organs and running re-education camps on its own people and farming intellectual property from every other nation. They deserve the blowback.
BTW today is the 30th anniversary of the Tienanmen square massacre, an event erased in Chinese history.
