I wonder if cutbacks in experienced engineers contributed to this problem. I don't think Intel has had any massive layoffs, but I would be surprised if they weren't running lean like the rest of the industry. Maybe this chip design was outsourced to a design center in another country to reduce costs. Did it really save enough to outweigh the 700 million? Just a thought.

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.
