Putting eggs in three baskets. Good for barginning and lowering risks. Bad for the design team, as the suffering triples...

I think unlikely for apple to move from one exclusive supplier to another. Good for everyone if 3-way competition Glo-Fo, Samsung, TSMC. TSMC almost too big to do an exclusive deal anyway without impacting other major customer. GF and Samsung also easy to move between for customer...any thoughts on capacity and utilization? I hear GF New York fab still not fully producing many years after building.

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.
