Is Apple (AAPL) behind an effort to build a giant chip plant in upstate New York? On behalf of an unnamed tech manufacturer, Deloitte has been pitching officials on a plant that could cost ~$10B to build, the Albany Times Union recently reported. Speculation has revolved around Apple, which is widely believed to be planning to migrate app processor production from Samsung to TSMC (TSM). TSMC has said it could build a plant dedicated to a single client, though Qualcomm could fit that bill as easily as Apple.

    Ok you people..AMD is the client who started the discussions with the State of New York to build a chip plant there and receive a substantial tax credit from the state. As the market has deteriorated and AMD has lost money q/q and y/y the status is not known by this old recruiter who used to work for AMD.

    Are you talking about the GlobalFoundries Malta fab? It's already gone live. This looks like something different.
