Intel has warned that that plans to build a chip fab in Vietnam aren't a done deal yet.
News reports on Thursday mentioned that Intel has been awarded a license to build a $605m factory in the nation that the US has previously tried to bomb flat. But it now seems that local officials were a bit too eager in claiming victory. Spokespeople at Intel's headquarters in Silicon Valley pretty much said that there is nothing to say at this point.
"We are constantly looking at opportunities around the world, but at this point in time haven't made any announcements about new facilities," an Intel spokesperson told vnunet.com.
Interpret that how you want it. But it certainly isn't a confirmation that Intel is going to invest in Vietnam.
