WCCF Tech noticed that Intel is expanding production capacity for test/finished processor goods at its Ho Chi Minh City facility in Vietnam. The move will aid with alleviating the current shortage of 14nm processors and chipsets. Delivery of processors from the new site is expected as early as October 8.
In order to ensure a continuous supply of the Intel Processors listed in the “Products Affected” Table below, Intel will be adding an additional manufacturing site for Test/Finished Goods. The new site is located in Vietnam. The new manufacturing site has been certified equivalent (form, fit, function, and reliability) for the affected products and technologies of this change.

Fabrication (Fab), sort, and assembly test facilities follow a Copy Exactly! (CE!) philosophy. Copy Exactly! enables delivery of product from multiple production sites, which operate as a virtual factory that performs consistently and independent of the manufacturing source site. Additional benefits include faster production ramps that improve product availability and improved consistency to quality performance. – Intel PCN
Intel is struggling with supplying the market with enough 14nm chips because the firm's 10nm process suffered multiple years of delays. Demand remains high and as more and more of Intel's product mix shifted to 14nm, the company ran out of 14nm capacity.
