AMD to begin volume 65-nano production in October

— 1:10 PM on September 8, 2005

AMD Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Henri Richard has confirmed that the company's Fab 36 manufacturing facility will open in October. Built next to AMD's Fab 30 plant in Dresden, Fab 36 will produce chips on 300mm wafers using 65-nano fabrication technology. Fab 36 is AMD's first 300mm facility, and it can apparently produce 13,000 wafers per month. The foundry was built with expansion in mind, as well; production capacity can reportedly be expanded to 20,000 wafers per month.

Fab 36's grand opening won't be just a symbolic ribbon-cutting photo-op. According to DigiTimes' sources, volume production of 65-nano parts will also begin in October.
