AMD opens R&D center in mainland China


— 9:44 AM on August 22, 2006

Just a few days after Dell publicly revealed that its Dimension desktop PCs would soon be outfitted with AMD's processors, the chipmaker continues to work toward increasing its presence—this time in East Asia. Today, AMD has opened a new, multi-million dollar research and development facility in Shanghai, China. Dubbed the Shanghai Research and Development Center (or SRDC for short,) the new facility will work on the development of AMD's upcoming mobile platforms in addition to testing and validation of existing and future chips. The facility will employ "hundreds" and become AMD's largest design hub outside the United States. AMD says the facility will also benefit its customers that are operating in China; those customers include Chinese PC makers Flocity, Lenovo, and Tongfang as well as companies like Acer, Asus, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, and Sun.
