Hi Peter - I thought I would share with you (and your readers) the Cowan LRA Model's August 3MMA sales forecast estimate compared to your posting of Bruce Diesen's expectation. The latest run of the model predicts that the 3MMA sales number for August will come in at $25.723 billion which is based upon the model's "actual" August sales prediction of $25.449 billion. This is slightly higher than Diesen's 3MMA sales forecast of $25.3 billion. Additionally the model's latest sales forecast for the full year is projected to be $305.729 billion. This yields a sales growth forecast estimate for 2010 of 35.1% which is much stronger than Diesen's recently increased chip sales forecast of 25% for 2010 as you pointed out. Mike Cowan, independent S/C industry analyst (and developer of the Cowan LRA Model for forecasting global chip sales)

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.
