Chip Maker AMD to Expand India R&D

Sunnyvale, CA-based semiconductor company Advanced Micro Devices which currently has a staff of approximately 1,300 in India, plans to hire more engineers at its two research and development centers in the southern cities of Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Jim Anderson, senior vice president, AMD said that the company will “continue to grow at these centers”  because a lot of advanced engineering work was being done in India. “For our Ryzen Mobile processor, lot of engineering work was done at Hyderabad,” he added.


Stating that India is an important market for California-based AMD, Anderson said that there is a huge market for business PCs, and the company aims to increase its share with aggressive marketing of its new products, reports BusinessLine.
