Approximately RM3 billion(USD785million) dollars worth of re-badged AMD processors were siezed by the Taiwanese police during a factory raid where approximately a million processors were found. The factory manager, 34 year old Taiwanese Wu Hao Min was arrested.

The Taiwanese police believe that all these processors are engineering samples with slight defects, smuggled out from AMD factories, rebadged by illegal merchants before being passed out to the retail market for sale.

AMD warns that using these re-badged processors might lead to system damage as the processors will not perform according to their re-badged specifications. Such processors are known to be floating around markets in SOuth East Asia, Germany and China
