Obviously it couldn't have been 100X slower. On a tangent from installation, what about production? What there a noticeable difference for the yield rate for manufacturing?

That's a large reason it had to go fabless.

I use to work for a large litho vendor installing machines worldwide. I was always surprised just how slow AMD worked compared to it's competition in Taiwan and Korea. Like 100X slower. It brings me no surprise that AMD are struggling in this saturated industry.

Unfortunately a step toward future downsizing. Hopefully things will look upward with the next tenant.

The carpetbaggers of the management team are selling off anything they are not ruining. Great job guys (and gal)! This company is going to implode.

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.
