Intel The Atom processor, the only bright spot on Intel's balance sheet, will soon no longer be manufactured by Intel itself (CNet has more). Intel has signed an agreement with the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), outsourcing the production of the successful chip to Taiwan. While it's not the first time Intel outsources production of its silicon, it is still an unusual move for the company to outsource the production of such a major chip.

Well, apart from a pair of monopolists attempting to flood the low power netbook market with windoze machines . . .

Still, it's always easier to let others do the innovating then clean up later.

HTH.
