Intel, GlobalFoundries and other chipmakers have built massive facilities to manufacture more powerful computer chips. It's all part of a race to prove they can keep pace with Moore's Law.
Simply put, the chipmaker is a U.S. based manufacturing colossus, as this quick overview of its operations should make clear.
It'll put between $6 billion and $8 billion toward building a fab in Oregon and upgrading four other U.S. manufacturing plants as it shifts toward 22-nanometer designs.
Live updates from the Intel Developer Forum's opening keynote presentations in San Francisco.
Intel's first manufacturing facility for producing 45-nanometer processors in high volume will open in October in Chandler, Ariz.
