Good news for Ireland. Also, this is sound strategy for Intel to distribute risk over wider geographical area.

"and beyond" is a new qualification here, used more than once. As if there will be no more equipment changes.

Ireland and Europe are struggling with their economy so Intel has more chips in its hand for investment negotiation.

The government and the Industrial Development Agency offer competitive financial and tax incentives.Also quality educated people are there. So Intel is in Ireland.

I am not sure how you draw the conclusion about equipment changes. To me it merely means that these factories will be used to produce silicon at 14-nm and node(s) beyond 14-nm, such as 11-nm.

Previously, the new fabs were viewed one node at a time, like just 32 nm, or just 22 nm. How can you plan its use for N+2, when the modules have not even been defined yet.

Not sure the Irish Government can do a lot on this front these days :-) It's a logical decision considering the alternatives. They needed the fab to be in Europe and Ireland is the logical conclusion given their existing infrastucture there.

It's just talk resistion. By then things could change of course.

1 billion US$ is a very huge amount Intel has invested in Ireland. It is a great luck for the people of Ireland that they will be able to participate in Research and Development with a great company.
