Intel to compete directly with TSMC and Globalfoundries

Bright Side of News wrote a piece about Intel's custom foundry business. The chip giant has opened up its fabs to whomever wishes to make chips on Intel's leading-edge process nodes, making the firm a direct competitor to TSMC and Globalfoundries.
It comes as very little surprise to us here at BSN* that Intel has officially opened up the company's fabs to whomever wishes to make their processors using Intel's leading-edge processes. The company has for many years been moving towards a point where the cost of building new fabs using leading edge processes simply would become impossible to sustain on their chips alone. The nail in the coffin for this rumor that has been circulating for countless years was the ascension of Brian Krzanich to CEO. Brian's role in the company prior to CEO was COO and prior to that he was responsible for managing the company's supply chain and manufacturing. The guy worked his way up from working in the fabs to become CEO, so you know that had to play a huge part in the board's decision to pick him. It was merely a matter of time until Intel became a direct competitor to TSMC and Globalfoundries.
