Intel Scaling Down Foundry Business?

Citing industry "observers," Digitimes claims Intel may scale down its foundry business.

Intel continues to break and probably has abandoned the "Tick-Tock" cycle, with its long-delayed 10nm Cannon Lake processors, the observers noted. Intel was supposed to volume producing its 10nm Cannon Lake processors in mid-2016 but the company released a 14nm Kaby Lake instead. With Intel confirming another 10nm chip delay, the company's ninth-generation family slated for 2019 would be built on its 14nm+++ process technology, the observers said.
