Whatever you can do, I can do better. Or, at least that’s the impression we get from AMD on this one. With chip makers like ARM and Intel already expecting to ship processors built with 32 nanometer process technology by the end of this year, AMD has finally come forward and admitted that it too is actually working on 32 nanometer chips.

In a recent interview with InformationWeek, the company’s CEO Dirk Meyer stated that it would be “ramping up” production of next generation 32 nanometer processors around the middle of 2010, but “volume production” wouldn’t begin until Q4 2010. It’s noted that AMD typically lags behind Intel by around six to twelve months in shipping next gen products, so news that it would be behind in the 32nm race isn’t all that shocking. Of course, we still feel that being so far behind is probably one of the reasons AMD keeps losing market share, but what do we know?
