Intel (INTC) might not be alone in investing in ASML - the Dutch chip-equipment maker has also asked major customers TSMC, the world's top contract chip maker, and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) to co-invest. That could well negate any aim of Intel's to use its interest in ASML to maintain a manufacturing lead over Samsung.

    The ASML press release, which differs markedly from the Intel release, makes it very clear that other customers can participate in this "Co-Investment" program and purchase as much as an additional 10% of the company. Note that Intel is consistently well ahead of any other semiconductor manufacturer and its lead will likely remain intact.

    pretty much what Pierr said. INTC only has to run as hard as the companies behind it to maintain its lead.
