Like most major IT players, AMD has decided to step up its presence in India, today announcing a new processor design center to be built in Bangalore.

AMD plans to open a 38,000 square-feet building in the heart of Bangalore's central business district. Close to 40 employees will start work at the site, which will open its doors in July. By the end of 2005, AMD expects to up the number of chip designers to 120.

"Engineers at the design center will work closely with AMD's engineering teams in the U.S. and will help define future microprocessor designs focused on meeting the evolving user needs in India and other high-growth markets," the company said.

It will nurture the AMD India Engineering Centre with $5m in funding over the next three years. ®
