(Ars Technica)   "On the same day that Congress passed the [Chip Act], Intel ... sliced $4 billion from its capital spending plans for the rest of this year, although it said that it was still committed to a "strong and growing dividend" for its shareholders"   (arstechnica.com) divider line

Duh.

No shiat, who are they going to sell their overpriced, underperforming crap to? Until they break into the ARM space the dividend is the only thing I'm interested in.

Failed world country propping up its corporate masters on public funds again.

Intel sold XScale ( which was StrongARM they acquired from DEC) back in 2006. Right after they told Steve Jobs they were not interested in providing the processors for Apple's new phone.

Business is cyclic. I would bet that future chip making will come online right when demand increases again.

Iirc it's partly due to China's demand dropping due to their imploding economy. A lot of recent demand was also catch-up from Covid slowdown, so there's a glut of chips of all types. Smart companies are using the time to prep for oncoming demand. Not sure what Intel's play is here.

Intel is crap. If I ever need a space heater / laptop combination, I'll look for "Intel Inside".

Is there a glut of chips for cars, made on a 28nm process?  'Cos that's what I kept hearing about for the first half of the year.

AMD is fabless, having spun off Global Foundries ages ago.

Intel knows the game in America: Socialize the risk, privatize the profits.

F**king corporatist kleptocracy.

But the used car salesman capitalists said they hate socialism!

That's one hell of an oof. Still, I wouldn't count them out. Where Intel really shines is processor design, they could very well go the same road as Apple with a home-grown implementation. ARM is too good to ignore and x86 is really showing its age, they could really bring the thunder and put Apple in their place here.
