    [News] Chinese Company Begins Making x86 Processors Based on AMD "Zen" Architecture

    https://www.techpowerup.com/245846/c...n-architecture

    Chinese chipmaker Hygon began mass-producing its first x86 processors codenamed "Dhyana" based on AMD's "Zen" micro-architecture. The processor is the fruition of a deal AMD entered with a Chinese state-owned company back in mid-2016. As part of this deal, a company called Haiguang Microelectronics Company (HMC), in which AMD has a 51 percent stake, would license the "Zen" architecture to another company called Hygon (Chengdu Haiguang Integrated Circuit Design Co.), in which AMD owns a 30 percent stake. Hygon would then design "Dhyana," and a third entity (likely TSMC or some other Chinese foundry), would contract-manufacture the chip.

    I hope AMD didin't really want to hang on to the zen IP anyways, since it's definitely going to be stolen.
    Sigs are obnoxious.

    The IP was already going to be stolen to sell to the chinese when obama/trump decided that no one can sell parts to them, at least this way they make some money on it.
