Intel delays 1272 process

Written by Nick Farrell



Sends workers home early


Intel is sending up to 600 Irish staff home early from training in the US after deciding to delay its next generation 14 nanometer microchips, known within the group as the “1272 process”.

According to the Irish press the move has sparked fears among the 4,500 workers at Intel’s Irish plant for the long-term future of their jobs. Intel chief executive Paul Otellini announced the Leixlip factory was one of three selected to produce its next generation 14 nanometer microchips.

The move was critical to securing the Irish plant and its jobs. Intel is refitting two plants at its Leixlip site in preparation for the new technology. Intel said that the slowdown in demand has prompted Intel to delay the introduction of 1272 manufacturing to its Irish subsidiary by six months, pushing it out to late next year.

Intel recently spent $3.5 billion on a new plant in Oregon, prompting speculation that the 1272 chip will only be made in the US.
