Llano is the very first generation of something Intel cannot ever compete with.
Definitely. They wasted billions on that pile of crap larrabee (sp?) and it will probably never see the light of day even for special purposes.
Any time intel delves into something they know nothing about it results in utter and fantastic failure. Itanium was a hoot, too. It had some good design to it (came from HP), but instead of realizing its weakness and inevitable downfall they continued pumping billion after billion into it.
I hope they try to compete in the consumer graphics again with more than just integrated dog droppings. The billions streaming out of their bank account with zero gain makes me smile.
Or they could pull the extremely masterful move of buying out nVidia, plunking down billions for that, then more billions (and years and years) integrating that IP & people into their CPU IP & people, make a mess of the whole thing and then realize they are WAY too late to the party anyway.
AMD had issues too, not with Fab but with production levels, TSMC just could not hack the volume requirements.
They were trying to dump them completely, but GloFo couldnt handle it all and thats the only reason TSMC is still producing AMD stuff.
Separate names with a comma.
