Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) officially opened a multi-million dollar R&D facility in Shanghai to "drive next-generation AMD processor-powered platform innovation through increased technology partner and customer collaboration."

Initially, the engineering staff of the Shanghai Research and Development Center (SRDC) will focus on the development of AMD's next-generation mobile platforms, but will also provide an important role in the validation and testing of AMD's broad range of current and future microprocessors, the company said.

"This opening, which is the largest single expansion of system design and customer support resources in AMD's history, represents both our deep commitment to China and to moving more of our center of gravity closer to customers and technology end-users," said Dirk Meyer, president and chief operating officer of AMD. "The SRDC will dramatically improve our ability to help our customers create highly advanced, next-generation platform designs and help accelerate time to market."

Located in the Zhang Jiang technology complex, the company plans to employ hundreds of staff at the newly constructed facility, making the center its largest system design hub outside of the United States.

AMD said the opening of its new center in Shanghai will benefit its key OEM and ODM customers in the region, including such as Lenovo, Tongfang, Flocity, HP, IBM, Sun, Acer, Asus, BenQ and Fujitsu.
