    Phoronix: Intel Reveals Few More Details Regarding 11th Gen "Rocket Lake" Processors

    While 11th Gen "Rocket Lake" desktop processors aren't expected to be released until the end of Q1'2021, given the interest building around AMD Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" processors, Intel revealed a few more details today about their next-generation wares...

    Rocket Lake are a bit of an Osborne* effect for Intel in that they already announced Alder Lake which are supposed to be released the following quarter.

            Wait...WHAT ?? THEY BACK PORTED TO A 14NM NODE !! SMH. AMD HAS BEEN AT 7NM. QUALCOMM IS AT 7NM GOING TO 5NM. SAMSUNG IS WORKING ON 3NM. APPLE IS SHIPPING 5NM AND WORKING ON 3NM. AND INTEL IS GOING FROM 10NM TO....14NM ??????

            Looks like this EPIC takedown of this latest Intel process shitshow is SPOT ON. Here's a clip.

            " What we should have said is that Intel would never be dumb enough to backport a 10nm architecture that was not designed with process portability in mind to a 14nm process. It would be too big, too inefficient, and simply not competitive with IP blocks designed and tuned for 14nm from the start. A company would need to be desperate and have their backs to the wall so badly that flushing tens of millions of dollars on this port for nothing more than a headline grab and an eventual black eye is worth it. That’s what we should have said but we would have been wrong there too, Intel it seems _IS_ that dumb."

            Here's the link to the entire post. Must read!!

              Intel is paying for decades of stagnation and customer neglect. I mean seriously, the fact that they simply can't move to 7nm is a stunning indictment of their incompetence and greed. So long as AMD couldn't compete they were happy to churn out the same crap at unfathomable prices, and they had no plans to change, ever. But now that they're confronted by an ethical engineering powerhouse like AMD the truth of their feeble character and ineptitude has been exposed for all to see.

              All I can say is thank goodness, and enjoy your comeuppance.

                I was hoping intel would be able to compete, just to keep AMD pricing in check, but it's not looking so good.

                I think 2022 is when AMD is going to start implementing the techie skim across product lines, because Intel will have no answer to the point of LOL. Come on Intel... you can't operate like the post office forever. Sun was massive, and put the dot in dot com, and now they're dot dead. Don't bitch out like that.

                  I wish that were true actually because AMD needs MORE profits to stay competitive and viable for the long term. But Intel has deep enough pockets to start a price war with AMD. In fact, they already have. It's one of the reasons Intel's stock has been cratering. Wall Street now knows Intel is full of shit and the only way they can compete with AMD is to drop prices which eats profitability which of course....kills the stock price.

                  But that said....WHAT a turnaround from the mid 2000's and the moribund Steamroller days of AMD and Intel throwing out 100+ SKUs of iSomethingmeaningless CPU's. And in that time, Intel has shed it's entire mobile division, it's entire modem division, shut down the Larrabee/Knight's Landing initiative and just recently sold off it's entire NAND/SSD division to HK Hynix. And they STILL can't get 10nm yield up enough in a profitable manner.

                  The only thing they have done right...to a point...is after almost 50 years Intel is about to make a decent GPU. And it took them only 3 years. Of course...they had to poach half of AMD's GPU engineers to accomplish that feat, but still.....

                    "Please please please don't pay any attention to the new chips coming from one of out competitors* next month which leaks** indicate stomp a mudhole in our best offerings*** for far less money**** pretty please. Wait until another six months for our new chips*****. They'll be better, we promise******. Pinky swear."

                    * Of course this is AMD, but Intel will probably desperately avoid naming them.
                    ** That at least appear semi-credible.
                    *** Well, actually, we've been mostly losing in the server space since Epyc arrived, and only AVX-512 has really allowed us to maintain any hope of competition here.
                    **** Bulk discounts, chip rebrands from Platinum to Gold, etc. don't count.
                    ***** But not a new process - in fact an old one! 14 is twice as good as 7, dontchaknow?
                    ****** Terms and conditions apply.

                    The above is satire.
