  • Investors Should Steer Clear Of Intel [View article]
    "Until recently, Intel's x86 chips took longer to boot-up, used more battery life during intensive-usage and most importantly, drained too much energy during standby vs its ARM-based competition."

    LOL!!! X86 chips took longer to boot up? What is this drivel??

  • Intel's SoFIA Could Be A Real Bombshell [View article]
    You mean TSMC's 28nm logic process? Why would TSMC just license its process to Intel?

  • Intel Really Doesn't Need An Apple Foundry Deal [View article]
    "The problem is internal to Intel. Intel's 3D transistors are too limited for all SoC functions. I have not seen any information that Intel can do mixed signal on their 22nm or 14nm processes. All the public information is that Intel farms mixed signal out to foundries."

    Slide 22. Stop making things up, investingInvestor.

  • Intel's SoFIA Could Be A Real Bombshell [View article]
    "Can somebody confirm that Ashraf is not making this up?"

    Well, what the heck else would they put in it? They're not using an ARM core, and it'd make ZERO sense to port Saltwell (old Atom core) to 28nm since it'd be the same amount of work as porting Silvermont except that it'd be slow and noncompetitive.

    Multiple folks have reported Silvermont, and it's really the only one that makes sense. I'd appreciate if you wouldn't accuse me of "making things up" - it's rude.

    BorisPetrov,

    Herman Eul confirmed that the core inside of SoFIA will be Silvermont. So Intel really is porting Silvermont to TSMC 28nm.

    Very poorly thought out article, unfortunately. Look at INTC's capex as a % of FCF and then TSM's capex as a % of FCF and you will understand TSMC's problem ;-)

    Thanks, RSA. If you'd like to offer a better/restructured list, I'd be happy to update :-)

    Trend (and quality of) is what matters in net income, not the raw value itself.
