Intel turns Vietnam into Haswell central

Written by Fudzilla staff

80% of Haswell production comin' from Nam

Intel showcased its first CPU made in Vietnam on Tuesday. It is a 4th generation Haswell part and it is just one of many Haswell chips coming out of Vietnam.

Intel is planning to produce as much as 80 percent of all Haswell parts in Vietnam. The shift happens gradually and Vietnam should hit the 80 percent mark year next year, as the sun slowly sets on Haswell.

Intel Product Vietnam exec Sherry Boger showed off the first Haswell made in Vietnam and told reporters that the Vietnam fab has been manufacturing them for more than two months. Intel built its first Vietnam plant in 2006 and in 2010 its biggest fab to date came on line in the South Asian country.

Intel imported equipment and engineers from Malaysia to speed up the transition. The company is planning to import and install even more equipment and to ramp up CPU production in Vietnam, reports Thanhnien News
