Intel’s new CEO Brian Krzanich describes what will be different under his leadership.
Apple may be trying to move away from Samsung, its arch rival in smartphones.
In the past, Intel has been so busy making its own chips that it didn’t make sense to do foundry deals.
Globalfoundries marked its third year as a chip manufacturing foundry by buying out the shares owned by Advanced Micro Devices. That fulfills the company’s goal of becoming an independent foundry, or contract chip manufacturer.
Intel has agreed to make chips for semiconductor start-up Achronix Semiconductor, marking the first time that the world’s biggest chip maker has given another company access to its golden goose, its most sophisticated manufacturing processes.
