Well said, Peter. But I think it's important to re-state that Intel left the WSTS program only after AMD did. With AMD out, Intel almost had to follow suit. Otherwise, the actual MPU data presented would be just Intel, and Intel may well be understandably uncomfortable putting out this much naked data. I do hope that both companies will reconsider their position on participation. Otherwise, I agree that it's a real shame.

This is a very well argued opinion piece. If anyone on our staff who has followed WSTS, SIA numbers closely over years, it's Peter. We heard from some of you -- but silence on this topic from the industry is deafening. I don't think Peter is alone who feels like his own glasses being smashed.
