"Sure you say Imagination infringes but are you sure........it's completely different I believe."
The difference is Samsung has more $ than Imagination, plus Imagination can sell a license outside of the US.
NVidia wants free license swap of Qualcomm's connectivity IP in exchange for NVidia GPU IP
"Back in the real world Intel never entered the gpu business"
LMAO !!!! A GPU architecture was too complex for INtel, and Larrabee had irrecoverable bugs..
"Larrabee became a supercomputer chip instead, Xeon Phi"
Gee, doesn't work as they planned, so what to do with it...
Take out the complex GPU that was too difficult for INtel engineers and hope we didn't notice...
"$4.6bn loss is pretty immaterial"
You always do like to ignore the obvious...
"become a profit in time as Intel gets better at producing cheaper smaller and more integrated mobile chops."
You say that every year....INtel is coming out with something next year, only this time, the competition is thru...
"Intel wins again"
$4.6 B loss...
"Do you seriously think Intel spends a lot of money to enter a market in force and then gives up after a year ?"
Did did it even take a year for INtel to give up on its discrete GPU business with the Larrabee faliure...
As you recall, the competition was thru... how could anyone possibly compete...
"46m tablets depriving ARM and its licensees marketshare is a victory and a continuous one"
How many were Win based, and continuous in a price war will last only as long as the bribes...
"you seem to think in your finite wisdom that it is a big deal "
most finite wisdom would include $4.6 B loss a big deal !!!!!!!!
"when it can just rightly be considered investment for the future."
amazing how in view of a $4.6 B loss... you claim victory...
do continue to ignore the obvious...
" Intel bids on the high margin foundry business and drains the profits from the foundry ecosystem by driving down the bids."
You're just guessing on this one. Won't happen as long as the competitive foundry is
supply constrained on their newest fab process.
"Intel will accept all ARM derivative business that does not compete directly with their x86 business."
Agree, evident by Altera. Fyi, INtel tried to get an x86 core into their FPGAs,
but didn't insist on it when Altera turned them down.
"Tut tut Marsavian, stepping into the Weaver land with that one."
In view of a $4.6 mobile loss... Mars claims victory
they do like to ignore the obvious on this board...
"Do not take this as a defence of RT. It was ill conceived, and should die ASAP."
"Windows RT: Maligned and mismanaged
The non-adoption of Windows RT was a perfect storm of poor decisions at multiple levels of Microsoft. "
"another stupid comment of yours related to defect density relative to a 3D structure...."
Calling your bluff... where is that comment
"how do you think compare TSMC FinFet margins compare to Intel"
IDIOT !!!! Provide any data on TSMC FinFet margins...
"you never bought ASML"
IDIOT !!!! Yes I did
"you don't have the brains"
"ou gloat about Intel loses in mobile "
more accurately LMAO !!!!
"but how much did MS write off"
who cares ? but go ahead and dig for it...
"you are nothing but a Troll"
Mars is correct
"I bet you the mobile SoCs have actually a "positive" impact on margins ...too complicated for you."
What part of a $4.2B loss do you not understand ?
...too complicated for you...
"special costs Intel is incurring that are pushing down gross margin "
bribes are bribes...
"Rebates, in the form of "contra revenue," and one-time engineering fees, called "NRE," are meant to reduce the "total bill of materials," which includes the higher cost of things"
Yes, INtel chips are expensive due to inefficient architecture.
but hey... it's all about the fabs...
"he made some stupid comments about FinFets
with regards to defects and FinFets only applicable to CPU"
Calling you out on your bluff. The board is waiting for those comments...
"Intel's increasing revenue, profit and marketshare numbers prove every year that the competition is being beaten back,"
You guys do like to ignore the obvious...
INtel lost $4.2B
" Intel's mobility division will follow the same trajectory too as it outpaces its competition year after year with its superior design/process synergy."
As you guys always say...
"Intel is coming out with something next year... only this time, the competition is thru"
"What is your great irrational anti-INTC hope now ? "
"Also notice that quarterly mobile revenue rose to ~$200m from $1m"
So update the loss from $4.2B instead to $4B...
