Is it really so slow here on OCN that we're going to discuss this "news" which is really more befitting for Forbes than a hardware site? "News at 11: Multinational company invests in foreign branch". Sheesh.

Why would Intel want to open a fabric in the middle of a warzone, in a potentially unstable state. Plus, it wont be really cheap to open it there and operate it....

My main guess is, so they can sell stuff directly to the Israel government and military and get access to certain stuff (no idea what stuff).
C2D Conroe and Sandy Bridge is designed by Israeli team if I am not wrong.

Coffee lake as well, and I expect ice lake to follow suit.

I was wondering same before I started the thread, I thought that it was important since it shows that Intel started to ramp up the R/D and development since the time of Tick/Tock is over and they cannot continue to milk the industry with same "up-to 28C " old CPU design.
We gonna see the new products from this new plant in few years I am sure, next 5 years gonna be like Roller coaster, unlike last 10 years that was QuadCore tick$Tock..
P.s - who knows, maybe the next Gen Intel GPU gonna be developed there :-), AMD and Intel gonna give very hard time to Jensen Huang :-).

If you look at the history of Intel major breaktroughs in CPU tech, you would notice that researchers hired from Israel had done this, so Intel decides to invest even more to, maybe, get an even greater breaktrough this time.

They are building a fab there. A manufacturing plant, not a research lab...

This. Presumably they're matching the Israeli site investment to the one in Arizona they sunk $5B into ~2011(?), and $7B in the last ~year for 10nm+ tech. There is no other US site that they can invest in that they haven't already.

Anyone wondering why they didn't do this in the US, maybe this will help:
Israel - does chip design (pre-tape out, no direct interaction with their fab) RnD AND they have a high volume factory.
Oregon - Does fab RnD in lower volume and makes it physically work (or tries - 10nm). Might be a chip design RnD team here too but as others have said, Israels team is pretty killer.
Az/Ireland do high volume production after Oregon gets the nodes quirks manufacturable and helps push yields along with volume.

Or...
Design RnD (IS/OR/maybe CA) --> OR fab RnD --> AZ/Ireland/Israel fabs for high volume.

Heh

I think I just set a new record for the number of times the word stupid has been used in reference to one of my comments in a single thread.

Some of the best INTEL chips have come from ...wait for it ... ISRAEL.
The facilities are underground and some of the smartest people in the world work there.
I thought you said "and some of the shortest people in the world work there" and had a chuckle.

Because the underground rooms wouldn't be roomy.
