By reading this article i remember about the Pentium 2 proceeesor which had a error in in its floating point proceeesor. That time also Intel replaced the whole lot of them. But after that also Intel was the leader and the same thing will happen now also. No doubt that Intel has the best in the world and at times rarely beyond the quality control these errors pop up.

This just shows Intel is getting sloppy and untrustworthy. I think Arm may grab market share from Intel in the future since multiple companies will use their IP for computer systems. I can see Google making a version of Android for the OS to compete with Microsoft as well.

True...for Intel "competition" may not be the appropriate term as they have more than 80% market share. But could it be something like "demand pressure"?

With the Japan issues, it is bad timing for the industry but probably gives Intel a break.

Has Intel disclosed why this issue was not uncovered during their quality testing? The lack of efforts towards checking the quality of a new product before launching it into the market is seen quite often now a days. Could this be due to competition / market pressure?

This incident reveals the dependence of the industry. If anyone of the parties in the supply chain delays, the whole chain will be affected. If a major part of the supply chain is affected, consequently, the economy will be impacted substantially. Engineers shall learn from it, understanding the impact of their work.
