Intel Planning 22nm Fab Upgrades, New 15nm Development Fab

Quote:
Moore's Law will continue


Intel is currently preparing production of its next-generation 32nm chips, codenamed Sandy Bridge. These will be built at the company's latest and largest fabrication plants, known in the industry as "Fabs". Mass production of Sandy Bridge is ramping up at the Fab 32 "Megafab" in Chandler, Arizona, and is being followed by Fab 11X in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Fab 32 has a very large cleanroom at 320,000 square feet, but is eclipsed by Fab 11X's massive 370,000 sq. ft cleanroom.

Although the world' largest semiconductor company currently has the manufacturing lead, it is not sitting still. The firm showed off its first 22nm shuttle wafers at the 2009 Intel Developer Forum, and is working on its first 22nm products, codenamed “Ivy Bridge” at its D1D research facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. Microprocessors built on the 22nm process are expected to run faster, consume less power, and cost less to produce than the current 32nm and older 45nm processes. Ivy Bridge is expected to enter mass production in late 2011 with third generation High-k Metal Gate technology. The company also has plans for a 50-core HPC chip to be built on the process.

Intel has announced today that it will spend $6-8 billion to support these future manufacturing technology advancements in Arizona and Oregon. The investment supports the creation of 6000-8000 construction jobs and 800-1000 permanent jobs. While Intel generates approximately 75% of its revenues from sales overseas, 75% of its microprocessor manufacturing is based in the United States.

I like to see a American company investing in America. In the most part Intel has always been a company with new technology, financed properly and moving forward.

22nm should bring upon 8-core, that is probably when I'll upgrade forgot 6-core. I expect all this to come slowly into play in a years time. Intel is going to push 6-core first then shortly after release 8-core.

Looks like some exciting new processors coming out in the next few years.

Good to see someone keeping their facilities in the US.
