 Chuan Intel outsourcing the entry-level chip to TSMC production


Netease Technologies News October 30, according to Taiwan media reports, sources said that in view of the shortage of its chip supply, Intel has begun to plan to outsource the production of entry-level Atom processors and some chipsets to TSMC production, but the profitable Xeon and Core CPUs are still produced by themselves.

The source said that TSMC was the only existing agent capable of handling such emergency orders, and the two companies have been talking about outsourcing Intel CPUs and chipsets since mid-2018. Intels chip shortage has extended from traditional personal computers to industrial PCs because of alleged shortages of high-end server CPUs, sources said. Intel announced earlier this month that it would invest an additional $1 billion this year to expand its 14-nanometer production base, which is expected to be used mainly to produce servers and Xeon and Core processors for high-end PCs. Intel expects third-quarter revenue to rise 19% to $19.2 billion and net profit to rise 42% to $6.4 billion.
