The whole concept of organizing the labs in Europe under one roof sounds interesting as the collective could be more than the sum of individuals. However, a more complete model for Intel in Europe will have to include next gen mass fabrication facilities so as to develop a vertically integrated model which can achieve large efficiencies by the efficient interplay of different stages of production. While the model right now will generate revenues only from the royalties on research patents, economic independence of Intel Europe will depend on whether it mass produces within Europe for the European and world markets.

Seems like the EU's regulatory extortion scheme worked brilliantly; US companies must invest in Europe and help advance European technology goals or face costly litigation. Watch the EU howl in protest if and when the US responds in kind; turnabout is fair play.

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.
