AMD announced that in June it began its first revenue shipments of AMD64 processors manufactured at Chartered Semiconductor manufacturing in Singapore. AMD and Chartered said they increased 300mm production at Fab 7 in record time. Initial shipments out of Chartered consisted of microprocessors manufactured on 90nm process technology.

"We selected Chartered to augment our production because of a shared philosophy of flexibility and agility in manufacturing," said Daryl Ostrander, senior vice president of logic technology at AMD. "Through integration of select advanced process control modules, we've enabled an on-time start-up."

AMD and Chartered originally announced a manufacturing agreement in late 2004 that called for volume production of AMD64 products in the second half of 2006. AMD said it will continue to enhance operations at Chartered with a planned transition to 65nm process technology in mid-2007.
