($3 billion over five years)

Quote:

"Another issue [unrelated to the research budget of $3b] is the fate of IBM's chip-manufacturing operations, which now produce products for its own systems and for other customers. People familiar with the situation this spring said Globalfoundries Inc had been in talks to buy the IBM factory in East Fishkill, NY, but no deal has been announced. IBM and Globalfoundries spokesmen have declined to comment on that possibility.

"Intel, the world's largest chip maker by revenue, was forced recently to annouonce a rare delay in completing its latest production recipe.  That technology shrinks the size of features on its microprocessors to 14 nanometers—billionths of a meter—from 22 nanometers on many current Intel products.

My comment:
(a) This report does not say much more than we know about the current status of chip production (application chips only, excluding memory chips). There is no need to read the rest.
(b) There is a PARTIAL translation:

Don Clark, IBM未来五年将投资30亿美元进行芯片研究.
cn.wsj.com/gb/20140710/bus082113.asp

The translation is so limited (about a third of the original)--and says even little--that one should skip it (translation) altogether.
