I'm wondering whether this IBM-GloFo-Samsung alliance will put an end to the semi manufacturing at IBM. Now that both GloFo and Samsung are building fabs in the States, IBM can built their chips for the US government there. However I believe that products like Power7 (just like Intel) will require that the chip designer works really closely with a fab. If the alliance works as tightly I dont know.

where do you think GF gets their 32/28 and 22/20nm designs?

It is amazing how rapidly the list shrinks at smaller nodes. Not a healthy trend for the industry, time for a fab co-op? What is also worth noting is that half of the fabs at 22/20nm are outside the western hemisphere. What does this bode for geopolitical perturbations? I am also surprised that IBM which does a lot of R&D work in advanced tech nodes is not in the picture below 40nm. MP Divakar

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.
