AMD's Krishna/Wichita are the next-generation versions of the low-end AMD Ontario/Zacate family. According to a report at Taiwan Economic News, AMD has contracted TSMC silicon foundry, to build its Ontario/Zacate processors and the Desna processors meant for tablet PCs using 40nm process technology.

The graphics lineup's next generation, the 28nm Southern Island family, has seen its tapeout completed by TSMC, which is expected to start contract manufacturing of the chips for AMD by the end of this year.
