Intel Corp. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) are set to make a strategic announcement on Monday, the 2nd of March. No details are known, but a joint strategic announcement by the world’s largest maker of microprocessors and the world’s top contract manufacturer semiconductors will definitely have an effect on the whole market.

The event will be hosted by Intel executives Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager of ultra mobility group and Sean Maloney, who is executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer. From TSMC, Rick Tsai, chief executive officer of the company, and Jason Chen, who is vice president of sales and marketing for TSMC.

It is unknown what kind of announcement will be made. It may be assumed that Intel would like to co-develop process technologies with TSMC, outsource part of production to the contract maker of chips or even build new factories together with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing.

On the 2nd of March the arch-rival of Intel, Advanced Micro Devices, will close the deal under which it spins off its manufacturing capacities to the new contract maker of semiconductors The Foundry Company, which is a joint venture between AMD and Advanced Technology Investment Company, which is based in Abu Dhabi.
