AMD thinks it can increase CPU sales by at least 33% in the coming years, despite the constraints it faces due to insufficient supply. Red team released details of another change to its wafer supply agreement (WSA) with GlobalFoundries on Thursday.

The published document primarily highlights the company’s confidence in its growth in the processor market. Overall, AMD increased its purchases of commitments from GlobalFoundries to 2025 (12nm and 14nm class) from $1.6 billion to $2.1 billion, an increase of approximately 30%. AMD also expects to increase its processor sales by at least 30% in the coming years, with CPU deals with TSMC.

Considering that the chipmaker buys most of its high-end computing silicon from TSMC, what products are they buying from GlobalFoundries? As you know, processors have more than one unit inside. GlobalFoundries, on the other hand, often supplies AMD with an input/output die (IOD). In this context, it should be noted that IOD chips are used in all AMD EPYC and AMD high-end Ryzen processors. The red team also buys wafers for the motherboard chip sedollar series from the same foundry.

Committed to purchasing $2.1 billion worth of wafers from GlobalFoundries, AMD will pay an additional $500 million. The move to expand WSA indicates that the company may continue to use 12nm class I/O dies in its processors for the foreseeable future. We don’t know if 12nm class I/O dies will be used in next-gen products like “Genoa” and “Raphael” with PCI-Express Gen 5 units, DDR5 memory controllers and 3rd Gen Infinity Fabric solutions.
