ATI WILL GO TO 0.18 MICRON PROCESS IN ’99

By CBR Staff Writer

Canadian graphics chip manufacturer, ATI Technologies Inc says that it will start producing chips using a 0.18 micron process in 1999. The firm, currently slated as market leader in desktop PC graphics chips sales, will farm out the production work for the new chips to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp (TSMC) and United Microelectronics Corp (UMC). ATI’s CEO K.Y Ho, talking to Nikkei Microdevices, claimed that the new chips would outperform their 0.25 micron elder siblings by four to five times. ATI is also planning to go to copper technology, but this won’t be until 2000 at the earliest. The company will start sampling 0.18 micron chips in the second quarter 1999.
