AMD yesterday announced its financial results , again with losses, and in turn announced that they are in talks with the Chinese government to make custom processors for these. If you are up to date with regard to international political news surely you know that the Chinese government is characterized by extremely restrictive with respect to information in and out of face to the public.
It is certainly one of the most emerging markets and better financial health of the world, so it is not surprising that they have entered into discussions with AMD to manufacture custom processors that meet their needs in the areas they need. I think it goes without saying much about what matters are these.
Anyway, it seems China is seeking to standardize the hardware with which both government and industry and public institutions, and of course the software that we already have "personalized" for years computers will work. In any case, it seems China has already tried to make their own hardware but without much success, particularly in the x86 environment, why is due to contact AMD to meet its objectives in this area.
Apparently AMD is going to be associated with THATIC (Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co., Ltd), so that AMD can give the Chinese government service regarding their experience with x86, so that China is able to manufacture its own custom processors both in the field of integrated SoCs to large multi processor systems. Logically China will seek to use what they get as a result both desktop PCs of public officials to their loose military industry.
We’ll see how it all this; if it goes ahead will certainly benefit financially AMD (according to the company will report them 293 million dollars), but be careful because there is the possibility that the US government baulk at AMD for this agreement, in the same way as it has done in the past.
