Any backlash about Intel's leaving WSTS won't be lost on the chip giant. Intel's leadership is politically astute, as they've shown in past settling antitrust cases before they go to trial.

I am having some interesting discussions with my editors in our virtual newsroom. I think this is a big deal. But others say that if they can't justify the ROI in investing in WSTS, they are making the right business decision. Now, that's where I start to worry. Business people often like to say "do the right thing." But the reality is that they like to talk about their occasional "doing the right thing" moments, because it happens so rarely. In most cases, business/financial reasons trump everything. Forget about doing anything for the greater good. Do we need WSTS? Do we need SIA? Let us know what you think.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
