Reports on the decision of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) to build a semiconductor fab in New York state. The decision of AMD to build a new $3.5 billion fab in New York state was a relatively easy one from a logistics and talent standpoint, but it wasn't the first company to scope out the site. Intel Corp. examined it in detail before ultimately rejecting New York's overtures, leaving the door open to AMD.
