AMD to Invest $400 Million in India to Expand Research and Engineering Capabilities
AMD announces a $400 million investment in India over the next five years to expand its research, development, and engineering operations. AMD, the semiconductor behemoth, intends to construct a new campus in Bangalore, complete with the world's largest R&D facility.
AMD said at SemiconIndia 2023 in Gujarat that the investment will create the largest AMD design centre with the addition of approximately 3,000 engineering roles and a new Bangalore campus opening by the end of 2023.
“The planned investment will include a new India campus, which will serve as AMDs largest R&D facility in the world. Our investment will build out over two decades of growth and successful presence here in India. Today I can tell you that we expect to add approximately 3000 additional engineers here in India by the end of 2028," said Mark Papermaster, EVP and CTO, AMD.
'We have a diversified portfolio across CPU Server Data Centre, GPU gaming graphics, PC, adaptive computing, and embedded devices, and this investment will allow us to expand our portfolio and capabilities as we bring AI processing capabilities broadly across AMD products,' says the company. "Our India team will be critical in advancing AI and machine learning capabilities in both hardware and software," Papermaster added.
AMD has been a part of the Indian semiconductor ecosystem since 2001, when the company opened its first office in New Delhi. The new 500,000-square-foot Bangalore campus brings AMD's total office footprint to ten cities: Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.
