During the recent IFS Direct Connect event, Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said he wants the company to enter the custom chips market -- something AMD is heavily involved in, but has its semi-custom chips made in Taiwan at TSMC -- as well as supply Intel's process nodes and "sharing" each stage of manufacturing technologies, including its exciting new packaging technology.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said: "Well, if you go back to the picture I showed today, Paul, there are Intel products and Intel foundry, There's a clean line between those, and as I said on the last earnings call, we'll have a setup separate legal entity for Intel foundry this year. We'll start posting separate financials associated with that going forward. And the foundry team's objective is simple: Fill. The. Fabs. Deliver to the broadest set of customers on the planet".

He continued: "We hope that that includes Jensen (NVIDIA), Christiano (Qualcomm), and Sundar (Google), and you heard today it includes Satya (Microsoft), and I even hope that includes Lisa (AMD) going forward. I mean, we want to be the foundry for the world, and if we're going to be the Western foundry at scale, we can't be discriminating about who's participating in that".
