Hi Dylan - if you add the Cowan LRA Model's latest forecast sales growth expectation to the mix it would fall below the WSTS / SIA's growth forecast of 0.4 percent and (obviously) above Carnegie Group's Bruce Diesen's prognostication of flat sales growth for 2012 (that is, zero percent). The Cowan LRA model's 2012 sales growth forecast estimate based on the WSTS's May HBR (Historical Billings Report) came in at 0.1 percent which is essentially no growth at all.

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.
