AMD Wants To Come To India In A Big Way

Global market leader in the chip making business, AMD plans to enter Indian electronics sector in a big way. It has already tied up with HSMC in order to manufacture chips locally in the country. AMD CEO and President Lisa Su met Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and conveyed that the company is committed to transform India into electronics manufacturing hub.

“AMD wants to come to India in a big way,” Prasad said. According to an official, Su discussed matters related to semi-conductor policy and its fab proposal. AMD has entered into an MoU with HSMC to explore various options for providing technology licence to manufacture micro processors in the semi conductor fabs. The government is working to make India a big hub of electronics manufacturing and is giving providing various incentives to companies to set their shop here.

Demand for electronic products in India is expected to reach $400 billion by 2020. This bodes well for Indian consumers, since local production brings down component costs. With the new Zen processors and Polaris GPUs on the way, this move is sure to excite gamers and hardcore users alike. Zen will apparently support 8-channel DDR4, and the presenter also reiterated some older information, including the fact that these new CPUs can handle 40% more instructions per clock than the current Excavator cores.
