Three series of ram raids on AMD UK headquarters in Frimley, Surrey, has led the managing director to issue an appeal to the thieves to lay off as there is nothing in the building worth stealing. Dave Brand, MD of AMD UK, said that on the last occasion, the would be thieves barged into the building putting the security officer?s life at risk.
That prompted him to contact the local newspaper which published a piece explaining that there were no K6 processors at the site. The offices in Frimley are used mainly for testing and administrative purposes, he explained.
Brand said that theft of CPUs continued to be a big problem for manufacturers but in AMD?s case, attacking the Frimley office was pointless.
The thieves had tried three times over the last five months to break into the offices, said Brand, which prompted him to make the appeal.
