    Maybe this is a sign that the fourth-quarter financial results due tomorrow aren't going to look good for Intel.

    Dout not opening a new plant that you already dumped $5bil into will make alot of dif to those results.

    It would cost a lot more than $5bil to outfit it with fabrication equipment, and with Intel's other fab's working at around %80 capacity obviously the demand they predicted would happen when they commissioned fab 42 isn't there any more.

    So that is a clear signal where Atom ( Mobile & Tablets ) and Notebook / Desktop Chips aren't doing well. The Atom plan never worked out, which means those expected capacity they originally anticipated wont there. Hence the Fab isn't needed. Notebook and Desktop Sales are rapidly shrinking and will properly shrink even more when larger size Tablet are coming in.

    Intel's Revenue and Profits are currently only helped by its unchallenged domination in Server market. Which is now becoming a high volume and high profits market.
