Intel to Open New 65nm Plant in China

Full 65nm production in China with 45nm to come later
According to a report at
, Intel is in the process of
launching a new fabrication facility in China
. The new facility will focus on producing multi-core processors at the 65nm level. Inside sources were unable to give exact details on date and costs of the facility, but considering previous facility projects, the new plant is estimated to cost Intel roughly $2.5 billion to $3.5 billion USD. Just several years ago, a full plant would cost Intel nearly $5 billion.
Intel already has an established presence throughout China, making the new 65nm plant its third major operation in the country. Shanghai and Chengdu are two locations where Intel branches staff roughly 6,000 employees.
's sources indicated, however, that Intel would be making its China operation independent, thanks to the enormous market potential of China that is just second behind the U.S.
previously reported that Intel was working on
expanding its capacities in Vietnam
, another hot region for tech companies. Although Intel's new plant investment will not be manufacturing actual processors, it would be contributing to such things as assembly and product testing.
While 65nm production levels out the mainstream, Intel announced near the end of 2006 that it will be introducing 45nm products sometime in the second half of 2007.
The company announced not just one, but two fabrication facilities,
capable of producing 45nm products.
Intel's Fab 32 in Arizona will be its first full facility in the U.S. in a long time and it will also be launching Fab 28 in Israel in 2008. Intel currently has over 15 products in development that will be manufactured at 45nm, but the company mentioned that until 2008 arrives, 65nm will be a key stage in processor and silicon development.

Oh, and forgot about a couple other things..
4) The economy has also grown since 2001 along with government expenses, likely keeping a lid on it.
5) Those CBO numbers (I looked at likely the same thing you did) assume we sit on our hands with all these failing social programs of ours. We will not; we can not afford to, and American's wont want to be taxed like their poor European neighbors are. On the other hand, Germany's projected to have it even worse than the CBO thinks we will have it, as our population will remain younger over all than theirs. By the time we get anywhere near those estimates for 2050, we'll either have cut back or otherwise adapted, and Germany will either have cut back or become an economic disaster, so such long-range estimates are useless.
