  • Guy apparently has no pride whatsoever. Hilarious. I fear an Angry Inch hissyfit is headed our way. Batten down the hatches. Tears are going to flow like water.

  • And now polluting the Micron board with his tears.

  • So obvious when you post in groups.

    Only noises he makes any more.

    A great idea!!!

    Works for me. A huge boost for shareholders of both companies.

    Get 'er done, Intel.

  • With Intel in the lead:

    Article today: "Micron Could Be First in Intel Acquisition Spree"

    Micron shorts, prepare to be crushed.

  • A guy who is incapable of dealing with a world where everything isn't about him.

    Intel and Micron announced in July they had defined 3D XPoint as a new memory architecture that fills a gap between DRAM and flash, delivering NAND like density at significantly higher performance and lower latency. "Chalcogenide material and an Ovonyx switch are magic parts of this technology with the original work starting back in the 1960's," said Guy Blalock, co-CEO of IM Flash.

  • Semiconductor giant Intel expects to meet growing global demand, especially in China, for advanced new memory chips as the company starts production of these devices at its facility in Dalian in the second half of this year.

  • Intel can look to bolster its position and gain dominance in the memory chip market by acquiring Micron. Currently, Micron has market capitalization of $14.6 billion, down from a peak of $38 billion in the start of the year. At that price, and considering the number of catalysts ahead, Intel can easily finance the acquisition by using the combination of debt and cash, just like it did for Altera. The American chipmaker has recently tapped the Australian bond market to raise the additional capital in the offshore market.

    Furthermore, Intel has also showed a real commitment to expand in Asia, and has been keen in the development of next generation 3D NAND Technology. The company has also planned to invest $5.5 billion over the span of several months to rebuild its old factory in Dalian, China for the development of the highly anticipated 3D Xpoint Technology. Buying Micron would also give Intel control of Taiwan’s Inotera Memories, which Micron just fully acquired last month. Several analysts on Wall Street expect that the DRAM pricing trends will improve in the second half of the fiscal year 2016, ending the current slump, and making this a perfect time for Intel to acquire Micron.

    It appears that Intel has finally found a way to curb losses stemming from the weak PC segment. Intel is simply looking to expand into different market segments with Altera Corporation being its first of many acquisitions.

    Even Cramer says

    "This quarter was a good quarter," Cramer stated. "It could've had a totally different coloration."

    Intel beat analysts' expectations for both earnings and revenue for the most recent quarter.

    I guess not but not to worry - you can still have a full day of impersonations and quoting 15 year old meaningless statistics.

    I still don't have any $10 Micron shares. Come on Wall Street - quit wimping out!!!

    Intel Metamaterials Breakthrough
    Sub-millimeter EMI Shunt Beats Shields

    A metamaterial breakthrough has been funded by Intel at the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Lab at National Taiwan University here. By folding a metamaterial up into the third dimension (3D), Intel has funded a breakthrough in noise suppression--specifically quelling electro-magnetic interference (EMI) thus enabling easier electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) of next-generation high-speed interfaces.

    "Along with the vigorous development of cloud computing, it is of vital importance to enhance the bandwidth and efficiency of data centers and their communication devices for next-generation communication," Wu told EE Times in an exclusive interview. "New high-speed signal transmission design and high-frequency noise suppression technologies are key to enabling wider data bandwidth in cloud computing and other applications."

    The NTU EMC Lab claims to be the first to use the invention of planar electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) power planes to suppress switching noise of packaged circuits, and now has a new claim--the first use of metamaterial differential transmission lines to virtually eliminate common-mode noise in high-speed differential signals.

    You shoulda bought the dip.

  • China's drooping economy is spooking markets around the world, but whatever's going on in China failed to dampen Intel's expectations for growth next year. Quite the opposite; the company is a little more optimistic than it was just two months ago.

    That should be somewhat reassuring. China has been the biggest market for PCs, and Intel is still one of the biggest suppliers of PC chips.

    Intel CFO Stacy Smith told investors the company is feeling cautious about China, but "We continue to believe the worldwide PC supply chain is healthy with appropriate levels of inventory."

    Even so, the PC market is shrinking, and some analysts are looking for signs that Intel will cut and run, but serving the business continues to return value to Intel investors, CEO Brian Krzanich said. Intel has no plans to exit the market.

    Intel has been pursuing several other business lines, explicitly to compensate for the contraction of the PC market, however. Those include serving the Internet of Things (IoT) and the data center markets, re-entering the memory market with innovative new designs, and incorporating security.

    Krzanich said, "Our future as a company will increasingly be a product of the virtuous cycle of opportunities in the data center, memory and IoT market segments. In fact, you can see the impact of that virtuous cycle in our 2015 results. DCG, IoTG and Memory delivered nearly 40% of Intel's revenue and more than 60% of Intel's operating margin in 2015. Additionally, these three adjacent markets delivered $2.2 billion in profitable revenue growth in 2015 alone. As we look ahead to 2016, we will continue to build on that strategy." DCG is the Data Center Group.

    The strategy appears to be working. Despite an 8% revenue decline in the PC unit, overall Intel revenue for the year was essentially flat.

    Intel expects things to pick up from here.

    "We are expecting revenue growth in the mid-to-high single digits relative to 2015," Smith told investors..."

    "It said Samsung's 10nm will be ready Q3, will make chips for AMD and Qualcomm, how is INTC's 10nm?"

    [As Ash has told us in his latest Intel bash, ARMs 10nm is only slightly better than Intel's 14nm.

    "which should have slightly better density characteristics than Intel's 14-nanometer technology"

    In other words the ARM 10nm isn't really 10nm - it is really 14nm that the marketing department has converted into 10nm because it allows them to claim that they have caught and surpassed Intel. Of course, they haven't and they won't.

    Ash, having said this, goes on to forget his own words and claim that Intel has lost fabrication leadership. If this isn't moral bankruptcy, then I don't know what it is. He should be ashamed of his obvious misrepresentations. For anyone who has followed his fall from anything approaching journalistic integrity, this is not a surprise but just a continuation. Having gotten the boot from places like iHub and Seeking Alpha, it's apparent that not everyone feels the need to put up with Ash's ethical missteps. Ash, if I have misrepresented the circumstances in which you left iHub and Seeking Alpha, I invite you to respond. ]
