AMD to boost chip production and invest in Germany!

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), the No. 2 maker of microchips for PC's, announced today that they will spend an additional $2.5 billion to upgrade and expand their two factories in Germany.

AMD is both boosting production and upgrading chip production methods as they continue to take market share from Intel and prepare to saitsfy Dell's orders for high end servers.

This is also a most welcome boost for Germany and the 420 odd new workers that will be hired a rare kicker for local employment challenges.
