Tom's Hardware reports Intel has reopened a Costa Rica facility that it closed six years ago. The chip giant set up a fourth "test and finish" site in the country, this one seems to be aimed at increasing it 14nm Xeon production capacity.
Intel said it has certified this fourth site “to ensure a continuous supply” of the targeted processors. The four sites are Penang, Kulim, Vietnam and Costa Rica. Intel is planning a “phased” implementation of the Costa Rica operations and has planned to start those on April 19, with the “remaining” operations to come online on August 3. After those dates, customers can receive processors from those locations.
The Costa Rica line will manufacture Cascade Lake second-generation Xeon Scalable processors for Silver, Gold and Platinum lines.
