Intel will invest more than US$120 million in its India research and development facility, which will be a global center for chipset design, according to Hindu Business Line.
The new facility will help in "consolidating" the chip giant's workforce, estimated to be around 4,500, noted the report. The workforce is being shifted from "low priority" to "high priority" areas, said Kumud Srinivasan, president of Intel India.
The center will also focus on high growth areas such as tablets, and mobile phones where rival ARM has been gaining traction against it in recent years.
The center will start operations in 2015.
