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.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.
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
