Hi Peter - per the subject the Cowan LRA forecasting model is predicting sales and sales growth numbers for 2014 of $335.8 billion and 9.9 percent, respectively. These latest forecast numbers are derived from the WSTS's recently posted May 2014's HBR which reported May's actual global semi sales of $26.9 billion. This monthly update for 2014's sales growth, gleaned from the latest Cowan LRA model run, projects a much higher sales growth number than Dataquest's just updated expectation of 6.7% even though the two sales predictions at $336 biullion match almost perfectly. The difference in the two resulting sales growth results reflect the higher 2013 sales base (at $315 billion) attribuable to Dataquest versus the WSTS 2013 final sales result of $305.5 billion

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.
