EE Times reports Intel will invest over $1 billion in its wafer fab facility in Leixlip, Ireland, to allow it to manufacture chips at 14nm and beyond.
The presentation, given by Intel CEO Paul Otellini, included a slide that detailed three Intel fabs set for investment for 14-nm and beyond. These are fab D1X in Oregon, Fab 42 in Arizona and Fab 24 in Leixlip near Dublin, Ireland.
"We're in the process of construction and initial deployment of equipment into 14-nm and beyond in Oregon, Arizona and Ireland," Otellini said in a presentation that was also captured as a webcast. The 14-nm process technology is expected to start being used in 2013.
