quote: The Intel Israel however much officially kept in the background "is the place where its all done"-All those in the business with access to such crucial information know it.
quote: The design team can be located in more than one location-technology enables you manage the design process without actually being at one place.
quote: You have to be in the business of Outsourcing to understand what I am talking.There are plently of Israeli firms who have much of their development work done by others namely India.
quote: The company's NetBurst architecture didn't scale and its Itanium architecture didn't sell; it looked as if for the first time in history, Moore's Law was in serious jeopardy.

quote: I like the fact that they have integrated the FSB on to the CPU but I'd rather see Intel keep the socket LGA775 platform and disable the on die memory controller
quote: when it's used on with DDR2 or motherboard that has a northbridge memory controller installed.
quote: I'd also like to see Intel ditch the "not invented here" syndrome and adopt an existing proven industry supported Hypertransport protocol.
