Well, if we count on their behavioural history, would be in Korea if its gonna be 300mm fab with capability of 450mm. However if itd be a fab with lower diameters than id bet for china.

Samsung has been been inching himself closer to Intel every year in the worldwide market, this is I guess shows they are really serious about it!

TI did purchased all the 300mm and a few 200mm equipements but not the building. Richmond Semiconductor won the auction bid for the 200mm and 300mm building for 12mil.

Could they move in on the defunct Qimonda site in Richmond Virginia? There is an empty 300mm fab on that site, rumor has it they are working to purchase this. Has anyone else heard the same?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
