You talk like ATIC would use its limitless funding capacity to AMD's sake. It won't.

The fact that they booted out AMD of GLF's MB and ditched future nodes of AMD's exclusive process says a lot of what kind of relationship they want with AMD.

GLF will take care of itself and will take decisions that are good for the company, not for AMD. Those 2-3 fabs worth of potential are more due to GLF's weakness than anything else. Had GLF other customers AMD would be facing more of the same constraints it is facing at TSMC.
