The last statement flies in the face of today's stock holder, who wants short term performance. It takes a cash cow(s) to be able to fund research in today's climate. The X86 has done that for Intel. How long will that continue?
I saw the Intel talk. As usually no useful information was given...just a lot of hot air
"Mayberry said that everything up to the 10-nm CMOS node – which is in development at Intel and will ramp production in 2015 - is effectively done."
give me a break. Intel cant even get 22nm atom parts to work before Q4 or early 2012
You know a lot less than you think you do.
I do agree that most talks from Intel are scant on details, but you have to look at their track record. Unlike IBM they don't systematically over-promise and under-deliver. Sure, there is a miss here and there, but rarely anything serious.
I suspect that the Atom issue has more to do with design than manufacturing. And Mayberry was talking about the manufacturing side. The recent gutting of IAG senior management suggests the same thing.
Aside from manufacturing breakthrough, much can be done in design and application areas. There are opportunities but there are lots of challenges, especially in the scale large enough for Intel. In addition to high volume applications, Intol may be benefited to develop low volume high value areas.
I invented a CPU cooler - 3 times better than best - better than water. Intel have major CPU cooling problems - "Intel's microprocessors were generating so much heat that they were melting" (iht.com) - try to talk to them - they send my communications to my competitor & will not talk to me.

INVENTORS - DO NOT TRUST INTEL!!!
BTW, I have the evidence - my competitor gave it to me.
BBTW, I am prepared to apologise to Intel if;
• They can show that the actions were those of a single individual in the company, acting outside corporate policy, and:
• They gain redress on my behalf.
Inventors - help your fellow inventors - share your experiences with companies - good and bad.
