FUD Zilla spotted news that Intel has showcased its first CPU made in Vietnam. It's a fourth-generation Haswell part and the sign of more things to come from the country as Intel plans to gradually shift 80 percent of Haswell's production to Vietnam in 2015.
Intel is planning to produce as much as 80 percent of all Haswell parts in Vietnam. The shift happens gradually and Vietnam should hit the 80 percent mark year next year, as the sun slowly sets on Haswell.
Intel Product Vietnam exec Sherry Boger showed off the first Haswell made in Vietnam and told reporters that the Vietnam fab has been manufacturing them for more than two months. Intel built its first Vietnam plant in 2006 and in 2010 its biggest fab to date came on line in the South Asian country.
