US reports claimed today that AMD has pulled the plug on its recent deal with IBM Microelectronics to manufacture its K6 processors.
Although AMD will retain the option of using IBM Micro factories in the future, for now it has ramped up its own manufacturing capacity, according to the reports.
IBM Microelectronics, however, has advanced .18micron process technologies at its fabrication plants, while AMD is still using its older .25 micron process.
According to distributors in the UK, there is now no shortage of AMD K6 parts while demand for the microprocessors is still high, indicating AMD has managed to increase output at its existing plants.
Next year, a state of the art AMD plant is scheduled to open in Dresden, Germany. No-one from AMD was available to comment on the reports at press time.
