Let's give some credit to Intel. It is making an effort to create jobs in the U.S. (and elsewhere.) Intel is also not flexing its muscle on game shows. It is trying to create jobs and keep manufacturing alive in the U.S.

Do you think Intel will be in oversupply when all this new capacity comes online?

I expected this! There seems to be hesitation for new 300mm fabs since the downturn. Companies rather invest in upgrading and ramping existing fabs. But upgrading tech nodes can not compensate for increasing demand long. Some of the leading edge companies face the questions: invest in new 300mm fab or wait a few years to get into 450mm?

And remember how 300mm started: first SC300 (Siemens/Moto) with a pilot then Intel with the first real fab.

I know a lot of Intel process engineers that were laid off over the last few years in favor of PhD's imported from India. These engineers have either found work elsewhere or are still waiting a call back. I hope this is good news for US-based engineers, but I will wait to see. Creating jobs in the US is one thing, creating jobs and filling them with US engineers is another.

Intel goes ahead in technology improvements and this gives a lot of opportunities to us. This is marvelous and knowledge to be imported from any place to succeed

I think it is an indication their 15 (sic) nm process is 'frozen' and ready for production. Good for them.

Wow, This is exciting. 14nm technology has arrived. And i guess Intel has deliberately thought to build this fab in US and not anywhere else. This will give some respite to the qualified job seekers who lost their jobs to outsourcing/recession.
