Intel Opening New Chip Plant in Arizona

Intel Corp. is opening a new $3 billion factory in Arizona, widening its lead over rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in the industry's switch to a new chip-making technique. The new facility in Chandler, Arizona, will be Intel's first plant dedicated to churning out 45nm microprocessors. Intel's new plant will cover 1-million-square-foot area, and shelter more than 1,000 workers. Intel and AMD currently make their most advanced chips on 65-nanometer technology, and both companies are spending heavily to outfit their factories with the cutting-edge equipment and technologies needed to make 45-nanometer chips.Source: Yahoo!

Bamboo is also catching on as a very eco-friendly plant to use in your landscaping. Low water consumption, high O2 output and a really high carbon intake. Not to mention that it grows super fast!

Good to see america gettings some investment in it. AZ is a melting pot of companies in high technological fields, just like huntsville, al. The company I work for, General Dynamics C4 Systems, has a huge headquarters in Scottsdale.

AZ has had an intel presence for some time, but not like this, this'll almost make up for the employee cuts a few years back in AZ. nice to see highend jobs nearby as well. (as we've lacked those for some time here)
