Why Dell does not show up in Server area?  Do they have one to show?

@HangLai: Dunno. Did not see that much of Dell at IDF. Cisco, HP, NEC, IBM, Supermicro had exhibits

Broadwell reaction

I'd love to hear reaction to the Broadwell 14nm design and it availability this year. Will it rekindle the notebook market?

The new CEO definitely seems to create enough interest and passion among the customers at IDF. The way he is shown to be accesible in the crowd is another representation of how passionate he is.

I think Intel surprized the world by demonstrating a working Broadwell PC using its 14-nanometer process, plus promising to start shipping to customers by year's end. Globalfoundries and Samsung are promising 14 nm by the end of the year, but TSMC likely won't reach its next node--which it calls 16 nm--until 2014.

If he want to be seriously taken in account by Unix/Linux servers world, maybe Brian Krzanich would have better to be known as BRK

Now, what is the smliey for "joke" ?

Dell has been trying to "hide" for few quarters so that they can go private. Now that is worked out, watch out for the new Dell.

@Rick, I do not think there is much correlatio betwen 14nm and notebook market. The people that use these systems do not truly care the feature size or the size of the transistors used. I guess the transition is structural owing to the way people work

Intel has been a leader when it comes to building new fabs and processes. They have the cash ad capacity to do that than anyone. The big question I always have howw other companies like AMD etc still exist in a world Intel dominates at least in the laptop and PC era.

@Goafrit: Thanks for the reminder about Dell's machinations.

As for Broadwell, you are right. Krzanich said nothinhg about the impact of the 14nm SoC for notebooks, nor did he say anything about the specifics of Broadwell (I suspect they will save it for IDF14)

The point was they have working 14nm products that will start sampling this year. In that way Intel is a year ahead of any competition. Wheteher their designewrs can make use of those transistors to reignite notebook sales and etc remains to be seen.
