According to the report of the Nikkei Asian Review, US semiconductor manufacturer AMD did not have any new technology transfer plans with Chinese partners. That means AMD's Chinese partner will have difficulty producing personal computers.
Speaking on the sidelines of the 2019 Computex computer technology exhibition taking place in Taipei, CEO Lisa Su said that AMD and its partner, Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co., Ltd. did not have any discussions. about technology transfer in the future.
Tianjin Haiguang is a chip research and development technology company, and is also a leading server manufacturer in China. Tianjin Haiguang has cooperated with AMD a few years ago, to exchange technology in semiconductor manufacturing and server processing chips.
AMD CEO affirmed that the partnership has not yet ended, but there will be no new technology transfer activities currently taking place. Ms. Su declined to comment when asked whether the move was related to the US-China trade war.
A few days ago, Huawei was also terminated by a series of US technology companies and provided components and software licensing. This is considered the enormous pressure that the US creates for China, to take advantage of sitting at the negotiating table during the trade war.
