New AMD chip factory may come to Saxony
A new chip factory from AMD should possibly be built in Saxony, at least that is what AMD Saxony boss Hans Deppe wants. AMD does not want to have made the final decision on the location until autumn.
The approximately 4 billion US dollar plant should then be completed by 2005. Because of these high costs, AMD would like to operate the new plant with a partner so that it does not have to build and operate it entirely at its own expense.
