AMD Calls Misquote On Fab Sell-off
 
Last week, Texas news site "Austin American-Statesman" published an article indirectly quoting the recently appointed AMD CEO Dirk Meyer to saying that the company would soon go through a major restructure that would result in manufacturing being taken over by a separate company. The story spread like wildfire and sparked debates all over the place. At one point, there were reports that AMD had confirmed that the fabrication process would be spun-off. This isn't quite the case anymore.
 
AMD has now claimed that Meyer never said this and attributed the Statesman's wording to the author's analysis.
 
"What Dirk said is that we planned to transform how we manufacture wafers, but we haven't gone in to any details about what the specifics of the 'asset smart' strategy are going to entail," said Drew Prairie, an AMD investor relations spokesperson Thursday.
 
The usual diplomatic response that neither confirms or denies the fabrication spin-off rumor.
 
What do you think will actually happen with AMD's manufacturing?
