Intel about manufacturing in China

Posted on Sunday, April 22 2007 @ 19:16:26 CEST by

Earlier this week in Beijing, Intel talked about its plans in China:
Intel is has invested $3.8bn in China in the last 20 years, with $2.5bn alone being directly invested in Fab 68. Usually Fabs are named in low numbers, but this was named 68 in respect for its Chinese rooting: six being smooth sailing and eight being for prosperity. Fab 68 will be another 300mm wafer facility with a 1.7 million square feet footprint.

Intel highlighted how it was dedicated to future research and development in China, working largely with the education system and Universities in several cases.

Could we be seeing future product names deriving from a Chinese background instead of Israeli? Who knows, but it seems the emerging market of more than one billion is certainly where the money will be in the future. Like so many large companies now, Intel intends to continue to cash in on it.
