Acer is set to buy Texas Instrument?s Dram manufacturing in the Taiwanese science park south of capital city Taipei.
Acer will now hold over 80 per cent of the manufacturing capacity of the high end factory,although the company refused to say how much it had paid for the fab.
Last month, TI-Acer abandoned plans for floating the joint venture and wanted to raise nearly $200 million for the joint venture.
Acer's problem is that competing Taiwanese companies have already made a killing in foreign markets by using the fab facilities in the country.
The news that Acer, probably the largest PC OEM in the world, was forced to buy out TI in Taiwan, caused its share price to slightly fall by four Taiwanese dollars to $70.
Now Acer will seek other partners to help it continue fabrication in the Taiwanese science park and to share the massive costs of running such a plant.
Last week, Samsung was looking for investment in South Korea from Intel to the tune of $1 billion, but that may be affected by the profits warning Intel issued yesterday, sources speculate.
