@matt Do you have any thoughts/opinions on in-house fabrication (Intel) vs 3rd party (AMD/TSMC) and the benefits or drawbacks for each?
@Maldron on the other hand, for smaller players it makes sense to go "fabless". Running your own fab with state of the art tech is not cheap (Fab42 for example cost Intel at least $5B to build and at least $5B more to put the equipment in, not to mention the ongoing cost).
@Maldron if you don't own your own fab, you have less control over your own destiny.
Imagine how AMD will feel when they can't get their next Ryzen line out the door because Apple decided to buy up all of TSMC's and GlobalFoundries' capacity first.
