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]

Past fab sites[edit]

Fab name Fab location Opened Closed Notes
Fab 1 United States USA, California, Mountain View 1968 1981 Formerly located at 365 East Middlefield Road.[12]
Fab 2 United States USA, California, Santa Clara 1968 2009 Located in building SC1, at the corner of Bowers Ave. and Central Expressway[13]
Fab 1A United States USA, California, Santa Clara 1980 1991 Located on Mission College Boulevard
Fab 3 United States USA, California, Livermore 1972 1991 Plant began making wafers in April 1973. First plant outside of the Santa Clara area, and is where the famous Bunny Suits were first introduced.[14] Located on North Mines Road.
Fab 4 United States USA, Oregon, Aloha 1976 1996 (decommissioned)
2016 (demolished)
First wafer manufacturing plant outside of Silicon Valley and first facility in what is now known as Oregon's Silicon Forest. Production began for 3-inch wafers.[15]
Fab 5 / D1 United States USA, Oregon, Aloha Previously a development facility, then production facility. Currently inactive.[16]
Fab 6 United States USA, Arizona, Chandler 1980 2000 First silicon wafer manufacturing facility in Arizona. Key architecture was the 286 microprocessor.
Fab 7 United States USA, New Mexico, Rio Rancho 1980 2002
2005 (converted to test facility)
Production focused on flash memory chips. By the time production stopped, plant was producing 0.35 micron-6 inch wafers. In 2005, $105 million was invested to temporarily turn Fab 7 into a testing facility.[17]
Fab 8 Israel Israel, Jerusalem 1985 2008
2009 (converted to die prep facility)
First Fab outside of the United States. Ended production with, what was at the time, the last 6-inch wafer fab. Building was converted into die prep facility to support nearby Fab 28.[18]
Fab 9 United States USA, New Mexico, Rio Rancho 1987 Facility eventually expanded to merge with Fab 11 in 1999.[19]
D2 United States USA, California, Santa Clara 1989 2009 (decommissioned) After being decommissioned, was converted into a data center.[20]
Fab 10 / IFO Republic of Ireland Ireland, Leixlip
Fab 11 United States USA, New Mexico, Rio Rancho (see Notes for Fab 9)
Fab 14 Republic of Ireland Ireland, Leixlip
Fab 15 / D1A United States USA, Oregon, Aloha 2003 (converted to assembly / test) Previously a development Fab named D1A before construction began on D1B in 1994.[21]
Fab 16 United States USA, Texas, Ft. Worth (never opened) 2003 (cancelled) Planned to open in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1999, but was eventually cancelled in 2003.[22]
Fab 17 United States USA, Massachusetts, Hudson 1998 (acquired from DEC) 2014 Facility used older technology and closed (along with Fab 11X) because site was not large enough to accommodate a leading-edge fab. Made specialty products on the trailing edge of chip technology, and was last to make chips on 200-millimeter silicon wafers.[23]
Fab 20 / D1B United States USA, Oregon, Hillsboro
Fab 23 United States USA, Colorado, Colorado Springs 2000 (acquired from Rockwell) 2007 Site originally purchased from Rockwell, but due to lack of demand and for financial reasons, Intel put it up for sale in 2007. It eventually sold in 2011 to the El Paso County government, who repurposed the offices.[24]
Fab 68 China China, Liaoning, Dalian 2010/2016 2021 3DNAND, 3DXPoint[25][26] fab that was sold to SK Hynix[27]
