@rick.merritt: I hope you get to attend IDF in Sept and give us an update. The Ultrabooks or tablet notebooks (or whatever buzzword fits!) could become a savior for Intel. The popularity of a tablet platform combined with computing horsepower at no/lower additional power consumption can be a real enabler. Looks like the fabs/IDM's at the next processor nodes can all be counted with digits in one hand! MP Divakar

At least this is one company that continues to invest in its future through research. Too many companies sit on the fence once they're ahead.

It's good for Intel to pave the path for Tablets, Smartphone market. Otherwise, they might be falling behind ARM in recent future.

It could be more tracks to handle more capabilities (at very least).

I wonder if the extra spending is to pave the way for 450mm wafers.

Doesn't this also mean they made some decisions about their 7 nm process?

When you have more, you spend more. Intel is using their cash to pave the way to future income in the netbook market.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
