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.

bla bla bla core business bla bla bla cooperation.
It is all about the price. Taiwanese workers cost less and their margin is not high enough on the atom. Some guys in their suit said they want more billions.
