Default AMD Opens New Global Design Centre in Hyderabad

TPU link: AMD Opens New Global Design Centre in Hyderabad | techPowerUp

I was kind of peeved when I saw this press release. AMD took a $53 million grant from the government of Ontario when they first acquired ATI assuming that they would solely develop APU technology in Markham. So now after a few rounds of layoffs in Markham they move to cheap Indian labour. Not to mention they were late with the technology.

Can't really blame them though, IIRC the agreement only applied to the first few major APU architectures.

After restructuring they are hiring people again, perhaps not specifically for APUs but there is still an influx of people at AMD.
