And it's working out really badly for them, what with the constant depletion of stock and huge premium over MSRP. wink.gif They're probably even taking a cut from the pre-tested units, further increasing their profits; on chips that cost, as seen on lower end SKU's, much less.

This thing with "ah!, AMD caught them off-guard and made them release CL ahead of time" only looks like a worst case that Intel probably foresaw, and it still ended up being extremely profitable for them.

How is that not a billion dollar plan?

I don’t think anyone is forgetting the teams behind Jim Keller. His name just happens to be strongly involved with a lot of major events in the industry. It is basically an Honorific because of that.

As for the other members of the team. Just to be working at the level his teams are on is incredible. Most would agree that even the ‘dunce’ of that group is nothing short of brilliant.

I think the point is that just like jim, raja at some point moved from the pure design to a more management position.
And while it has its pros and cons, some things he has to move to other hands in order to concentrate on the new things that are handed to him as part of being in the management position.

This has implications. While your vision can stay intact, you lose some of the control and you have to put your faith in the people under you, which they might either not share the exact same vision, or their implementation of your vision is not as accurate or not as good as you wanted it to be.

This is where while them being jim and raja, they aren't in the same position as they were before, so they are not exactly capable of having the same influence or same design anymore, because their look has shifted a bit.

A good example is that white one can be a great designer when he was given a lot more free hand, when he moves up, he now has to rely on his replacement designers, whom he might not give the same free hand, or whom he is pushing his own vision instead of giving the designers the same free hand.
This might have implication on the end results, which might not be 100% either side's design.

Even if Jim was pure management on Zen, his previous hands on work still earns the Honorific.

That said, it would be fun to know exactly what the whole process of Zen was like. Who was doing what? How did it evolve? What was tried and flopped early?
