AMD builds new test and design center in Singapore
AMD has now laid the foundation stone for a new test and design center for its semiconductors in Singapore. The total costs are around 45 million US dollars and the system that AMD already owned in Singapore has been expanded from 24,000 to 32,000 m² Production facility can be used. So far, all Duron and Athlon processors have been tested for their function in Singapore and then packed. In addition, the developers were involved in the design of the upcoming 'Hammer' processor family with 64-bit technology. The new system should be operational in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2002.
