Intel to hold off on 22nm upgrade for Irish fab?

Posted on Tuesday, September 13 2011 @ 22:19:34 CEST by

BSN reports Intel seems to hold off for a year on their promised upgrades to Fab 14 in Leixlip, Ireland:
Irish rumors are that Intel will hold off for a year on their promised updates to Fab14 in Leixlip, Ireland. The subcontractors, who were hired to do the refurbishing, are now saying they will not see any Euros from that project for a long while.

Earlier this year Intel was talking about another $500 million upgrade to the second Irish Fab (24) from 90/65nm directly to 22nm (also in Leixlip - near Dublin, Ireland). Interestingly BSN* was having lunch near the Intel HQ last week and some of Intel’s staff was mumbling over their Chicken Marsala. They were whispering about Israel Fab getting more of the 22nm work load from Ireland’s Fab 24 and the potential downsizing of Fab 14.
