Wall Street Journal accuses AMD of causing threat to United States of America’s security, AMD fires back

Recommended Posts


The Wall Street Journal recently published an article regarding AMD, seemingly condemning the CPU manufacturer for “giving China the keys to the kingdom.”

The Wall Street Journal claimed AMD was “helping China in its race with the US to build the first next-generation supercomputer - an essential tool for advanced civilian and military applications.”, due to AMD making a licensing deal with THIATIC (a known military supplier backed by the Chinese government).

AMD’s Senior Vice President, Harry Wolin, quickly responded to the article with a corporate announcement, claiming:


“The Wall Street Journal story contains several factual errors and omissions and does not portray an accurate picture of the joint ventures that AMD entered into with THATIC in early 2016.”

Wolin also states that multiple United States government agencies were briefed on the ventures beforehand, and:


“received no objections whatsoever from any agency to the formation of the joint ventures or to the transfer of technology – technology which was of lower performance than other commercially available processors.”

What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you trust in Wall Street Journal, or consider their conjecture to be libel?
