I suppose Intel currently looks at NAND technology as somewhat strategic to it's desire to advance solid state and hydrid drives since it helps maximize (their) microprocessor performance. And as long as it's breaking even or not losing too much money in this venture it will continue the partnership.

IM always has such a 2nd tier mental, it ll never make a bold move to really improve it's cost/volume or compete for top spot. it will just be happy to remain alive for the next downturn.

@any1 may this was Intels old plan. This collaboration dates back to 2006 as the article states, so may be they are just continuing with it.

It's interesting to me that Intel is still a part of this joint venture manufacturing low margin commodity memory. They got rid of NOR and PCM (Numonyx), yet they remain with Micron in IMFT developing and manufacturing NAND.
