AMD has contracted Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to manufacture its Hudson-series chipsets, which support the new Brazos platform, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report. The paper did not name its source.
AMD has announced that its Brazos platform is available in two APU variations: E-series (Zacate) and C-series (Ontario), with the former designed for mainstream notebooks, all-in-ones and small form factor desktops and the latter for netbooks and other emerging form factors. These APUs are paired with Hudson southbridge chipsets.
TSMC has grabbed contract manufacturing orders for one of AMD’s Fusion APUs. Codenamed Ontario, the chips are built on 40nm bulk technology supplied by TSMC.
