AMD Initiates Pilot Production of 45nm Chips

Dirk Meyer, the new chief executive officer of Advanced Micro Devices, said during a conference call with financial analysts that the company had initiated pilot production of microprocessors using 45nm fabrication process and that the chipmaker was on track to deliver actual products in volume in early fourth quarter.

"We are well on track with the 45nm plan as we have been telling this group about in the past. We have actually started production late last quarter and are on track to start buying shipments early in Q4," said Dirk Meyer during the conference call. Earlier it was widely believed that AMD will only manage to start shipments of its 45nm microprocessors late in Q4, however, the company now seems to be a bit more optimistic about its 45nm transition.

Unfortunately AMD's success in the past has been off the back of Intels stupid mistakes (aka P4 as one example). Unfortunately when you build your whole model off the basis of whether your competition fails to execute a plan, things go pear shaped when the competition doesn't make a mistake for quite some time.

Kinda hard to beat a company that is over 15(more then this now but this was how it was back in 2005 or so) times larger than you and can just throw wads of cash at problems. The sad part is that even with that much more money Intel lost the lead for a few years before retaking it, imagine if Intel had a little money as AMD did and then pulled that P4, they might not have survived.

Actually, they would have survived and continued to do quite well because of AMD's success. Intel owns patents on x86 and AMD has to pay Intel if they want to use it.
