This is a very well argued opinion piece. If anyone on our staff who has followed WSTS, SIA numbers closely over years, it's Peter. We heard from some of you -- but silence on this topic from the industry is deafening. I don't think Peter is alone who feels like his own glasses being smashed.

Well said, Peter. But I think it's important to re-state that Intel left the WSTS program only after AMD did. With AMD out, Intel almost had to follow suit. Otherwise, the actual MPU data presented would be just Intel, and Intel may well be understandably uncomfortable putting out this much naked data. I do hope that both companies will reconsider their position on participation. Otherwise, I agree that it's a real shame.

Presumably they decided there was no return on their investment in these market information programs. Time for the data-gatherers to regroup and reassess their product.

True, Both analysts and data-gatherers will have tough time because they will not get reliable data and real insight into the market.

Are these services are still useful to any companies to make future decisions or investing in right technologies. I believe the technology is matured to a level where there is not much help due to sharing of information.

Probably the companies feel unsafe to them or they feel that their growth is effected because of the data released, the competition intensified and it is not healthy.

Information is power and companies have every right to withhold it if they can gain a competitive advantage as a result. Of course, it's not good news for us, but times are tough and I can understand the temptation. I guess some form of information sharing will re-emerge at some stage in the future when the market stabilises.

Why is it not good news for us @KB3001? I think it gives us some room to chat, blog, speculate, and maybe even make some money in the process of offering our consulting services ;-)....Kris

Hi iniewski, I was thinking of the EE/EETimes community at large. Granted, it's great news for consultants :-)

This type of market data is very valuable from a competitive intelligence perspective. Perhaps we are finally seeing a recognition that this data does too much to help the competition.

To @Mike Bruzzone, what is wrong with Intel "Intel strategy is to push through molecular at process saturation so they own quantum on long time monopoly gaming"? Many start-up and large companies are looking at quantum computing, if I had a great idea in this space I would had started my own company and hope to be acquired by Intel one day(Unfortunately I don't)...this seems natural to me, Kris P.s Quantum computing is probably 20-30 years from being commercially useful
