The old Intel R/D fab near 101 was  a much better choice.

I doubt there is much 200 mm vendor support. Many consumables/parts are EOL. It's probably not even copper.

I guess we'll know if they use ot for a data center because there will be a fire sale on the used semi gear

I am thinking it may be for R&D into sensors or displays using MEMS technology. It would be good for that.

The other possibility is people have been buying old fabs and turning them into data centers.

What would Apple do with a fab geared for analog parts that does 90nm parts at best? Apple Watch chips?

I know it is not fabs for production, but just can't help thinking of the old sayings. LOL
