On Sept. 29, 2023, Intel announced the start of high-volume manufacturing using Intel 4 technology in Leixlip, Ireland. Made possible by the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology, the use of Intel 4 will help Intel deliver future products, including the upcoming Intel® Core™ Ultra processors (code-named Meteor Lake) and future-generation Intel® Xeon® processors.

Production at Intel Ireland’s Fab 34 is also the first use of EUV in high-volume manufacturing in Europe. It is the next step in Intel’s goal of creating a first-of-its-kind end-to-end leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing value chain in Europe.
