The industry is not predictable these days. All the firms had bad quarters. This will be a reset. I think future Qs will be better.

Yep! In addition SEMI's prediction for 2012 improved for fab equipment spending (YoY): Nov -12%, Dec 2011 -4% and now Feb 2012 0% flat). Their forecast was pretty much on since Oct 2007. So, there are positive signs!

At least someone is raising there predictions. It seems like there is still too much doom and gloom in the industry.

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.
