Intel moves 45nm to volume

Intel has begun high volume production of 45nm devices at Fab 32, its $3billion investment in Chandler, Arizona.

"The opening of Fab 32 is a testament to Intel's continued investment in our most strategic asset – the most advanced, environmentally friendly manufacturing network in the world," said Paul Otellini, Intel's president and ceo. "The magic of 45nm and our new transistor design allow us to deliver high performance, energy efficient processors to our customers across the entire spectrum of market segments, from the most powerful servers to a variety of mobile devices and everything in between."

Two additional 45nm, 300mm fabs are scheduled to open next year in Kiryat Gat, Israel (Fab 28) and Rio Rancho, N.M. (Fab 11x).
