Comment

The Wall Street Journal, citing insider sources, reports that Intel stands as the prime contender to secure financial backing for the establishment of chip-manufacturing facilities aimed at diminishing the U.S. military's reliance on imports from Asia, most notably Taiwan.

Funding from the U.S. government would serve as a vote of confidence in CEO Pat Gelsinger's vision to position the company as a domestic substitute to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, the world's largest contract chip manufacturer.

While the precise funding amount remains undetermined, it is worth noting that the establishment of secure chip-manufacturing facilities may require a total investment of approximately $3 billion to $4 billion. The Chips Act, authorized by the Biden administration, encompasses a total of $39 billion in manufacturing grants.
