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?
