Bohr's statements apply to the bleeding edge of 20 nm and below. Intel doesn't have any trailing edge fabs (like 0.18 um and older). It has one 200 mm fab in Hudson at 130 nm.

Golden words "part of the secret to its success is its close partnership between process and chip designers" and Intel is leading.They have the power full R&D team with sufficient finance.

given the fact that not many companies can develop technologies at 2X and 1X nodes due to high monetary cost, going solo is not an option. Either collaboration or going fabless is an option. Intel is surely ahead by 2 to 3 years as far as technology is concerned.

Intel Corporation is a Patriot while most other fabless are pinheads.

Problem: "I hate it when they are so well trained by their PR departments." Reporter 101 solution: Booze Nice Piece, Amigo.

Intel is basically telling Wall Street (thru the conference) AMD, Qualcomm and the rest of the industry can't compete because they're fabless and dependent on inferior technology so we deserve a better stock valuation. Ho humm. Haven't we heard this basically at every technology node?

Intel is making fun of TSMC for limiting the process variants, but the they could stand to look in the mirror. They pretty much fill their fabs with a single product variant. I agree that very advanced products on very advanced processes will probably have to be co-developed for each other. This will cause challenges for some companies, but not most. Most foundry customers run a variety of products in smaller run rates and with more process variants. They could not ammortize the cost of doing it themselves and need a foundry model. I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two companies head back the other way or engage in a JDP model with a foundry.

bohr's view is narrow in the sense that he assumes high quantity products. however, once the scaling ends slowly, the design matters more, and increasingly differentiated designs are used for different applications. NRE will matter a lot. bohr should be worried about having only one customer.

I'm surpised to see such grandiose claims from an Intel spokesman. They have a huge talented work force and history doesn't validate a previous commenter's claim that they don't innovate. As long as your factories are running and you've got high margin products, no need to dump capacity to others and enable your competitors.
