I'm not sure where I indicated this - I said they were trying to resolve their 10nm issues before resorting to a third party. Intel's supply issues are a relatively recent phenomenon, and was brought about mostly due to their failure to transition to 10nm in time. Supply issues were not a concern when they originally built their fabs. Improving their fabs can help resolve their supply problems - smaller node can allow them to produce more chips with more performance per watt. This is what they've been trying to do for the past five years or so - trying to transition to 10nm. They are only resorting to third-parties because they are unable to do this (assuming this rumor is true, of course). Swan indicated that they will increase capacity by 25% in 2020 (in addition to the 25% in the past year), although this doesn't necessarily mean they've built new facilities. I think one of the problems with this is that they are now creating bigger chips than they were building before - up to 8-core for desktop and 18-core for HEDT, a significant jump from the 4-core and 10-core chips from before Zen. I think this has added to their supply problems (so these increases are only bringing them back to where they were before).
