"Intel is building a new fab in the US!"

Going to need to have more distributed production if the new normal's going to involve random(ish) supply chain farkery.
even ignoring the weather's sure making things tough.

I always get "Goodbye Columbus" confused with "The Graduate" momentarily.   In the combo version, he'd be saying "Intel."

Looks like the plant won't be finished until 2025? So, it may not be as helpful with the current supply problems as we might hope.

Nearly all of Intel's chips are manufactured in the US.

New chip factory huh?
I hope they set up a salsa plant nearby. Can't have chips without salsa.

b2theory: Nearly all of Intel's chips are manufactured in the US.


Surprisingly, this is true.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_manufacturing_sites

14 of their 19 currently operating fabs are in the US.  (Plus two in Israel, two in Ireland, and one in China.)

Nice win for Ohio, nice win for Columbus except for the fact they are building in New Albany where all the new HQs have gone, is already severely overpriced, and are getting $1bln in state funding for infrastructure upgrades to an area that is brand new and doesn't need upgrades.

Plus side, it's out east instead of in the oversaturated and overbuilt Dublin/Powell/Worthington area

Lol.

Accurate headline:

"Intel pretends to commit to $20b investment in Ohio, federal and state governments give Intel $19b in tax credits, Intel later 'forced' to lower investment due to market instability."
