AMD signs processor deal with China's Founder

Chinese PC vendor Founder will next month begin selling PCs based on processors from AMD.

Chinese PC maker Beijing Founder Electronics will launch next month a series of desktop PCs based on processors from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD).

The introduction of the AMD-based desktop PCs by Founder will be followed by the launch of notebook and server products also running processors from AMD, the chip maker said in a statement Thursday. Founder and AMD did not disclose the specifications of the PCs that will be introduced next month.

Founder is China's second-largest domestic PC vendor, behind Lenovo Group, which also uses AMD chips in some PCs. China's third-largest domestic PC vendor, Tsinghua Tongfang, announced plans earlier this year to offer PCs based on AMD chips.

Thursday's announcement is not the first collaboration between Founder and AMD. In 2003, the two companies agreed to cooperate on the development of home media centers based on AMD's Alchemy and Geode processors.
