This is based on an FGPA chip, so its cost will not be competitive with the foundries. It is just a way to get it to market quicker.

I was also thinking the same that if Intel opens its door to fabless companies then it can give tough competition to TSMC, Samsung and etc. The only downside is that Intel will need to develop process technology for wide range of designs and constructs.

Intel as a fab

Pressure is on for TSMC, GF and Samsung. Altera is a great customer for Intel 14nm, who will be next?

The Altera chip would make a great 14 nm pilot vehicle.

Good point Larry...I am sure Intel would love to cripple ARM business when things pick up and foundries get full...but I am sure ARM inserted soem contract provision against situation like this...woudl love to see the contract too ;-)

You are right. The high end FPGA are expensive (> $5,000) and to compete in the server market, they have to offer at least 5Xperformance advantage over x86. This is very unlikely and hence not a real volume competition to the X86.

This is an easy decision when fab capacity is available, but if demand ratchets up there might be some very interesting meetings going on at Intel regarding prioritization of access to assets. I'd be curious to see how the contracts read in this case.

Makes sense...Intel needs to fill the fabs, sell their own uP and whatever else they can, even if ARM based

@Alex: True and these big expensive FPGAs can afford to pay a premium for Intel 14nm tech!

The CEO's statement is definetly interesting,but he prices of high end FPGA's are very different from those of cpu's, So i  don't see this chip as something that competes with intel.
