      Intel builds a $8bn new manufacturing facility in Ireland

      If there’s one thing Intel has been struggling with in the last years, it’s pumping out their CPUs. Not only has the 10nm fabrication process been delayed three years so far with no guarantee it will make it this year, but lately Intel’s 8th gen and 9th gen parts have suffered from low yields that have increased prices, reduced availability, and even forced them to return to 22nm in some cases. To change that, the multinational micro-chip producer Intel has reportedly filed a request for a huge expansion to its Irish manufacturing campus Leixlip.
