Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said: "Since its founding, Intel has been devoted to relentlessly advancing Moore's Law. This new factory space will bolster our ability to deliver the accelerated process roadmap required to support our bold IDM 2.0 strategy. Oregon is the longtime heart of our global semiconductor R&D, and I can think of no better way to honor Gordon Moore's legacy than by bestowing his name on this campus, which, like him, has had such a tremendous role in advancing our industry".

The honoring of Gordon Moore -- the name behind "Moore's Law" -- is awesome, with the massive near-500-acre campus called Gordon Moore Park at Ronler Acres.

With the new expansion of our D1X factory, Oregon is well-positioned to deliver the next generation of leading-edge technologies. Semiconductors are fundamental to U.S. technology leadership, our economy, and supply chain resilience.
