@GMSD: Interesting. I saw a Berkeley poster on Chisel and RISC-V at Hot Chips. They plan a September bot camp. But what's thre route to making this commercially viable?

As folks said at the event, we are at a stage where no one has motivation to drive a new ISA.
 BTW, Nividia announced earlier this year it will license its Kepler GPU IP.

@SSLIVA: Funny I forgot the Goog/Mot connection. The PowerPC partners are back!

Perhaps IBM pulls through at least in part because it has the pockets -- and the foresight -- to think ahead -- way ahead. As the NYTimes recently noted, "I.B.M. was granted more patents in 2012 than any other company, **the 20th consecutive year in the top spot**". Personally, I have the pleasure of writing about IBM on a regular basis -- at least the folks I'm in contact with -- those working on their chips and basic science stuff -- are insanely smart and innovative. And as a company, they always seem to have an ace in the hole. They understand Big Data as few do. Last stand? To borrow from Mr. Twain, I think that falls into the domain of great exaggeration.... IBM is, was and always will be an amazing company.

That is completly and utterly sad, it sounds like Dilbert was written by an IBM insider :-(
