Is this just a commercial for the starting material?

So it seems like the cost savings is purely from the elimination of implant masks, presumably because of FDSOI's superior short channel control. I guess that's nice, but I'm skeptical about the $500 price for a starting wafer... when I think they're a good 10x that right now.

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.
