The town of Fort Collins, Colorado will be host to a new AMD design center, the chipmaker announced today. The new facility, which AMD has nicknamed the "Mile High Design Center," will be led by 24-year industry and processor design veteran Mark Porter.
AMD's press release reveals little else about the "MHDC," but previous reports by RealWorldTech give a better idea of the company's plans. The reports said AMD hired Itanium designer Sam Naffzinger and planned to bring in another couple hundred employees to the MHDC to work on "brand new MPU designs" for mobile and server systems. The reports also mentioned that AMD had relocated employees from its Longmont, Colorado design center, which it intended to close, to the MHDC. AMD's press release doesn't list the Longmont facility alongside its U.S., Indian, and German brethren, so it might have gotten the axe already.
