What about the former Qimonda fab in Richmond Virginia that is now owned by Richmond Semiconductor, that 300mm FAB is empty. How come there's no interest on any of the big players on buying it? That Fab is pretty new... just wondering why no one wants to buy it....

TSMC and Globalfoundries look like they will be the big two in silicon foundries. The rest will be falling behind and only survive if they are in niche products.
