    Intel human ressource growing thin ?

    In the past intel had to work on a single process for is X86 chip and had a single arch for all is produce line.

    Here a quick list

    Intel itanium is on the top of the TDP and RAS for intel, aim at mission critical. Poulson next itanium generation should be release in Q4 2011 or Q1 2012. Testing of those chip are awful and take a serious time. Multiple power plane and Multiple treads per core have make thing even worse.

    Intel Xeon MP aim at quad socket and higher while its the same arch/core that there xeon little brothers and socket 1366/2011 they have a much larger core count and extra RAS feature. Again awful to test those chip. Like incoming new itanium they need to test new I/O feature CSI 1.1.

    Intel Xeon aim at dual or single socket server (include blade) the core of there data center strategy. Sandy bridge version under socket 2011 +/- 1 are coming on the Q4 2011/Q1 2012.

    Intel I7 EX is intel xeon for desktop use they are the flagchip the most powerful single socket computer are built on those. They need to be able to substain very high overclocking and extreme performance. Sandy bridge version are coming on Q4 2011/ Q1 2012

    Intel I7/I5/I3 Here is the bulk of there volume. They need to perform high low power low cost . in short do everything well, now they also need to keep a balance between GPU/CPU/MEM. They range from 19 watts to 90 watts.

    Intel Atom. TPD range is from under 1 watts to 10 watts. Just like there bigger brothers they need to find a balance for GPU/CPU/MEM. They also come in SOC or more regular package. If we are looking at smartphone/tablet version the intergradtion of I/O and 3G/4G capacity is also crucial.



    Intel produce now cover from under 1 watts to 100+ of the itanium. From mission critical to smarthphone. Intergrade GPU to none, massive I/O to 4G capacity. Some tech can be re-use to a end to a others. With 3 main arch several variant, GPU division that now need to work on several different project, I/O that cover super computer to a mere smartphone. IS intel have the humain resource to able all those thing at once. There been delay by 1 or 2 quarter on almost all project, ivy bridge, ATOM cedar trail, chipset as been awful from the SATA bug lack of USB 3 or the Z68.

      [Hmmm. You're right, they must be short of cash. We may have to wait until they have trillions instead of billions. Couple more quarters...]

      "There been delay by 1 or 2 quarter on almost all project, ivy bridge, ATOM cedar trail"

      [Um, you do understand the nature of cutting edge technology as opposed to say making doorknobs, right? Maybe no one has told you but it's complicated. Intel has hundreds of projects in process. I wouldn't exactly say that two delays would constitute "almost all". And have you noted the problems that the competitors (who are two years behind ) are having with fabrication? You're cherry-picking the data and then using invalid extrapolations. The last time they did that they proved the earth was flat.]

      [Also you have to admire a company that takes the time to get it right rather than rushing it out the door.]

      "chipset as been awful from the SATA bug lack of USB 3 or the Z68."

      [The SATA problem was a long time ago. It didn't affect Sandy Bridge processors at all and it was fixed very quickly. I have no idea what you are talking about in regards to USB 3 or Z68. It looks like you just threw in the kitchen sink to make your argument sound less Swiss-cheesy...]

        Now that right there, folks, is a beat-down.

        Nice work, Sir Wallace!

    • IMO, Intel should consider splitting the company up. There should be a unit devoted solely to servers/clouds as that's the growth engine for this company for the next few years. Another, devoted to mobile, etc. The server unit alone is worth $25 to $30 a share. Paul O. has done a terrible job understanding how to monetize Intel to the market.
