Furthermore, Sanjay Jha, CEO of GlobalFoundries, a semiconductor foundry, listed Tesla as an example of a company working with chip fabricators. That doesn't totally preclude AMD, which declined to comment on the report.

For those who are not aware, GlobalFoundries is the chip fabricator of AMD and has an existing agreement until 2020. Tesla is viewed as a leader in all things autonomous and any architectural move from the company is not done willy-nilly.

The rep said that Jha mentioned the automaker along with others like Apple and Google as big players "showing interest in working closely with silicon companies to differentiate their offerings", and reiterated that Tesla and Global Foundries aren't working together.

More than 50 people are working on the project under Jim Keller, a longtime chip architect and the head of Autopilot hardware and software of Tesla, according to the report.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, said that transitioning from the reliance was a "tough slog" on the vision chip of Mobileye. Since that time, AMD has continued to show strength across multiple sectors.

Not a threat to make landfall, Hurricane Jose, a Category 1, is well off the shore of North Carolina. That's 2 cents down from a week ago, when prices were recorded at their highest point for 2017.

Tesla might soon have a new AI chip built specifically for its cars to bring the Autopilot system to full-on self-driving status, and it's probably getting help.

The news that Tesla may use Advanced Micro Devices intellectual property to produce the chip sent AMD stocks rising almost 5 percent Wednesday and continuing to rise after the trading day closed, CNBC reported.

Further, according to a source told the CNBC, Tesla already received back samples of its processors of its first implementation and lately is running tests on it.

Further, during a presentation at the Deutsche Bank Technology Conference last week, AMD CFO Devinder Kumar responded to a question from AMD's US semiconductor research chief Ross Seymore about downward pressure on the company's semi-custom business due to the cyclical nature of the gaming console business by saying that although revenue will be down year over year, there are "design wins" coming. We'll keep pressing on the matter, among others.
