Intel to outsource low-end CPU production to GlobalFoundries?

Posted on Tuesday, January 28 2020 @ 16:04:30 CET by

WCCF Tech heard whispers that Intel is planning to outsource some of its low-end CPU production to GlobalFoundries. Intel is still struggling to supply the market with enough 14nm processors and outsourcing some production could help the chip giant to get supply and demand in balance. The site heard that Intel is most likely to outsource Celeron and Pentium production, and maybe even Core i3 production.
Since GloFo is stuck at the 14nm/16nm process for now this would make sense as Intel would be freeing up critical fab space for its higher end processors while moving these parts where the market is fairly stagnant to GloFo. Another reason why this rumor makes sense is that the transition to GloFo is in line with their vision (as opposed to TSMC) considering the former is located inside the United States and the status quo socio-political scenario right now wouldn't look too kindly at outsourcing capability to TSMC.
Will be interesting to see if this is true.
