[WA] Intel--Dupont, WA continues to shrink

Sad for DuPont, but could provide some new housing opportunities for Voxxjin See Profile and family.
A real sign how much Intel is hurting from the economic situation.
their also downsizing Albuquerque area fabs as well.

I was going to say.....Oregon's Intel campus isn't seeing an issue.

Nope, they'll pull back to one or more of the Oregon Fabs.
All the DuPont and ABQ transfers are to Portland area.
Intel is far from broke, just pulling back from some earlier commitments/being very careful.
Also with each die shrink (smaller generation processor) each fab make 50 to 200% more processors so less fabs are needed for the same output.

That and until their focus has more fully shifted to mobile-applicable chips, they have to deal with the falling PC market.
