AMD pledges educational help

Abstract:
Officials from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. say that when the company formally commits to build a $3.2 billion computer chip factory in Saratoga County, it plans to get heavily involved with the community, especially with education.

That's what happened when it opened facilities in places like Austin, Texas and Dresden, Germany over the years.


"It will be as soon as we go ahead with the project," said Ward Tisdale, AMD's director of global community affairs. "As soon as we get to that point, we'll be very proactive."

Tisdale and other AMD executives were at the Queensbury Hotel Friday morning participating in a talk about education sponsored by the Adirondack Regional Chambers of Commerce and the Adirondack Business & School Partnership.
