Of course a major company downplays the significance of a smaller competitor buying a technology that they passed on. This isn't news, this is expected. News would be Intel expressing regrets that they didn't buy the technology when it was offered.

Well, you know in this business, the best defense, besides offense, is not to be defensive. That is why it is common for "no comments" to be a response. In this case, Intel could have spun it jokingly around to say "glad AMD has come around". Instead, it gave the message that even though you were once a supporter of Intel technology, Intel can turn its back on you, rather than help you develop.

The better Shakespeare line that applies to these comments is "Much ado about nothing"

Or, taking a page from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Act III, scene II "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

KB +1 on that. Sour grapes and likely a strong bit of not-invented-here (NIH) mentality from Intel's team. They have their own Xenon horse in the server race now - buying Seamicro might have been an acquisition disaster, ie, not enough room in the sandbox for two server chip design teams.

AKB3001- Possibly. I would have been a lot more surprised if she had said something like, "Yes, SeaMicron has great technology and we are kicking ourselves for not thinking of acquiring that company." Still, I thought this was a particularly strong worded comment about a competitor's acquisition.

Sour grapes, Intel?

why Intel to talk about this? They could have kept quite.

When Intel doesn't stand by its champion(s), this is what happens.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
