    • "Oh yeah, ARM64, thanks for reminding me about the processor the "Whole world" is excited about after all that heavy investing."

      You're welcome !!
      You do keep forgetting though...

      "ARMH will grandstand ARM64 and take it's victory lap before it even hits the market. Lots and lots of hyperbole,"

      What hyperbole will that be ??
      or is the hyperbole for this board...

      "And yes, you are running out of things to cheer about,"

      Honest... you got me laughing...

    • Intel spits on 80% fab process yields. 80% is a joke.

    • "Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC) 28nm processes have topped a yield rate of 80%, the Chinese-language Commercial Times cited unnamed equipment suppliers as saying in a recent report. Meanwhile, the foundry's new 12-inch fab - Fab 15 - will have a capacity of more than 100,000 12-inch equivalent wafers in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to the report."

      Read it carefully, it means that one one wafer they got a yield of 80%. If they could consistently do this they would put it in writing. What's their real yield rate? 40%.

      If they had a yield rate above 50% they would switch immediately to selling by the wafer? Why? As yields improve costs would go down, and a consistent price would drive the market.

      What I am reading from this article is that the pay per wafer business plan isn't working and they are having guys like D.A.N out their BSing suppliers with bogus numbers.

      As the numbers on the bottom of the article state the sales figures aren't that great, 5 and 7 percent versus the expected 20%. This pay per wafer idea was the best thing ever for Intel. They easily lost 6 months due to production issues and now pure stupidity. The iPhone 5 threat of TSMC/QCOM is now gone. The iPhone 5 will most likely be a Samsung 32nm. And with the full scale production cycle of the holiday season now out of reach, they are ramping up production for the slowest time of the year for consumer gadet sales. Oh well, at least they will be ready for ARM64 by the end of next year.

        this year...

        "TSMC will be able to satisfy all demand from its major clients including Qualcomm, Nvidia and AMD by the fourth quarter of 2012 "

        NO !!! the article said:

        5% Q1
        7% Q2
        20% 2012
