Intel (INTC) has been cleared by Irish regulators to build a $4B plant in County Kildare that will initially produce chips relying on the company's next-gen 14nm process. The project could eventually create 800 full-time tech jobs; Intel already employs 4K workers in the region. The news comes shortly after Intel announced a bigger-than-expected 2013 capex budget, in large part due to plans to spend $2B to begin work on an Oregon plant that will make chips using 450mm wafers.
