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.

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?
