Intel's (INTC) unit in Israel doubled its exports to $4.6B in 2012, accounting for 20% of the country's high-tech exports, which would otherwise have fallen 10%. The figures come at a good time for Intel as it contemplates out loud where to develop manufacturing capabilities for its next-generation 10 nm chips - Israeli governments are usually forthcoming with sizable grants when Intel promises to invest billions of dollars.

    Many of Intel's most important products, such as its microprocessors, were developed in Israel; from the Pentium to Ivy Bridge. So, why is the growth of Intel's unit in Israel not good for Intel?

    I think you comment deserves an explanation, if in fact you have one that can support your views.

    Of course it is irrelevant to Intel's bottom line. if they produced in china or anywhere for Intel what matters is cost of production and ASP. Having exported more for Israel is only good for Israel. It will be good for intel if they can get more subsidies from Israel.
