I had heard from an Intel engineer that there is so little labor in a chip that skills, experience and infrastructure are more important than wage rates. I also get the impression that Intel invests in plants with an eye on the long run. Political and social risk is large (over the long term) in any country that is going through rapid socioeconomic changes. It makes sense to gain experience in China, but not to move everything to that jurisdiction.

Intel is in hot water with Fab 68. It either has to sell it or be politically incorrect by converting to 45 nm HKMG. Or maybe direct to 32 nm makes more sense. Even low end Chinese chips are moving beyond 65 nm.

Intel already have 45nm and 32 nm technology. Agree..65nm is not the latest techno.

The most interesting question to me is, "what 65 nm ICs will Intel build in this fab?" I mean really, 65 nm is old school at this point.

I vote for the Oregon Development Fab. It is 450 mm ready and changes and ends the economic for everyone. The question in my mind is when will Intel convert older 32 nm lines to serve outside customers. Intel could easily become a major player in Foundries, it only needs a business goal. The China Fab lowers their cost for older technologies without having to go to a Foundry; thus the first Fab of Intel's Foundry Business just went live in China! 5 yrs from now, Intel will be a major player in the Foundry space.

OK. So Intel opened a fab in China. What's the big deal? Or is it? What's a bigger deal? Intel's new U.S. fab or the China fab? I vote the China fab. Others out there?

'love your neighbor as yourself' I bet your community church pastor could enlight you. In your case, you need to love the chinese/indians etc as yourself/or americans. If chinese get rich, get tech etc. you should feel just like you are getting rich. Your trouble and your confusion comes since you lack such kind of wisdom. It time for you to grow a little on this, it's called touch of holy spirit. yeah, you need some holy spirit.

Yes, I think if they learn the 45 nm HKMG, that is the end. That is the point of the Wassenaar Arrangement.
