    If a bridge fails, your car is going to see the failure and stop, that's already a non-issue.
    The terrorist situation is so rare that you will still save live even if that happens a thousand times as often as it does today.

    11:16PM EST - That's a wrap. Nothing mentioned about 10nm...?


    That pretty much sums it up.
  • TEAMSWITCHER - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    10nm is hard.
  • SaturnusDK - Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - link

    Probably why AMD and others make go for 7nm in commercial products in the H2 this year while Intel will be stuck on 14nm until next year at least.
  • tsk2k - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    "CTRL+F search 10nm" oh intel.
  • hahmed330 - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

  • JanW1 - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    "Experiences that no-one has yet to imagine"

    Now I'm scared.
  • Bullwinkle-J-Moose - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    Don't be scared, the new Computer Logos sum it up nicely.....

    Genuine INTEL
    What could possibly go wrong?
  • willis936 - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    Idk why I read this when I could have just watched an episode of Silicon Valley.
  • HStewart - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    What I found most interesting is the following lines and this could explain the delay in 10nm

    "10:45PM EST - Building full quantum computing systems
    10:45PM EST - Showing the next step: a 49 qubit quantum chip
    10:45PM EST - Pushes beyond the ability to simulate"

    It sounds like they are making new technology that will be impossible for companies to simulate/emulate the architecture on say the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
