AMD APU gives turnover warning after lower sales




AMD has its revenue guidance revised downwards. The chip designer expects lower sales than previously reported due to disappointing sales APU via computers manufacturers. In addition, AMD announced a one million write-off in connection with the transition to finfets.

The turnover of the second quarter, 8 percent lower than in the previous quarter, says AMD. Previously, AMD reported a sales decline of 3 percent. “The sequential decrease is mainly attributable to lower than expected demand for consumer PCs, which affects sales of APUs for OEM’s,” writes AMD. The company says nothing about the individual APU sales or the video card deliveries. The chip designer makes final figures announced July 16.

Furthermore, AMD says $ 33 million, converted 30 million to write off single. This has to do with the transition from the 20nm-production process for a FinFET-node. AMD says the production of multiple chips to start on 20nm, now making the move to FinFET. The transition to the 14nm-FinFET-process enables the production of AMD chips are cheaper and also more economical. Intel Broadwell generation has been producing at 14nm and will soon reveal the Skylake platform on 14nm. AMD uses the 14nm-production GlobalFoundries, which together with Samsung switched to the FinFET-process is making.
