Intel's New Strategy
 
Title shortened just because :bleh:

Quote:

-Two new fabs in Arizona, $20b investment
-New Intel Foundry Services, offering Intel manufacturing to customers
-Next generation 7nm chiplets for ‘Meteor Lake’ will finish design in Q2 2021
-New research collaboration with IBM in foundational semiconductor design
-New Intel Innovation event in Oct 2021, Spirit of IDF

Today Intel will be announcing a $20 billion (USD) investment in two new manufacturing facilities (fabs) in Arizona, set to come online for production in 2024. Gelsinger will point out today that Intel is ready to break ground, increasing the number of factories on Intel’s Ocotillo campus (Chandler, AZ) from four to six.

These new fabs will be on leading edge process node technologies, with Intel extending cooperation with the State of Arizona, as well as the current administration’s target of improving semiconductor manufacturing inside the country. All parties involved seem raring to go, and Intel will be seeking to outfit its production facilities with the equipment necessary to enable leading edge manufacturing, including using Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) technology.

New CPUs worth a damn in 2026. :bleh:

Hmm intel opening up its foundries to other users? Be cool if amd got to fab there... With only 3 bleeding edge foundry players maybe they are doing this before FTC gets a whiff of lack of competition.

Alder lake will be worth it in 2022 if they can make more than 4 core cpus... had read that it would be a 4 big cores and 4 small core design... hope thats not true.

And will this make their products better than AMDs in the future?

Maybe, maybe not, but two new fabs in the US are worth noting...

The primary purpose of that bigLITTLE design is for laptop, not desktop. Although I likely will find its way into some desktops as well.

honestly with the chip shortages its not a bad play on there part. what they need to do is also start a substrate production company.
