I don't believe that anyone is talking about Intel shutting down any fabs. This is just some speculation that Intel will not immediately upgrade Fab 24 in Ireland to 22-nm (which the company never publicly said it planned to do).

Do they allow high-k etc. in China (transfer from outside) now?

I am not sure there is much Wassenaar opposition any more. Didn't that cat get out of the bag a few years ago?

Fab 24 is at 65 nm and so doesn't even have high-k or immersion lithography, it could be too much to catch up. Although there would be no Wassenaar opposition to Ireland upgrade compared to China.
