You could see the rationale behind what they are trying to do: harness Intel's old comparative advantage and try to copy it to the new cloud/IoT world. The world has changed though as there are many players knowking on the door of cloud computing and IoT. Intel can no longer claim the high profit margins they could do in the past. A heavy branding exercise like this does not make sense anymore as it will inevitably make their products/services less competitive. Their cash kitty can only take them so far... my 2c anyway.

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.
