The following is a list of Intel's manufacturing and assembly/test sites. Processors are manufactured in semiconductor fabrication plants ("fabs") which are then sent to assembly and testing sites before delivery to customers. Approximately 75% of Intel's semiconductor fabrication is performed in the USA.[1]

Fab 3[edit]

The Intel Fab 3 building is a wafer manufacturing plant located in Livermore, California on North Mines Road. The plant opened in 1972 and began making wafers in April 1973. Fab 3 closed its doors in 1991. It was the first plant outside of the Santa Clara area, and is where the famous Bunny Suits were first introduced.[10]

Fab 42[edit]

The Intel Fab 42 building is a wafer manufacturing plant located in Chandler, Arizona which is currently being built. There is a plan to make 7 nm CPUs when the installation zones are completed. Intel intends to spend as much of $7 billion to finalize the construction.[11][better source needed][12]
