SA-Saffer, 24 Jul 2019Nope, Intel sales says you are lying lolI don't care about sales. I care about nanometers and benchmark results. I hope Ryzen 4th Gen (next year) will be able to surpass on apps that has Intel Compilers (intentionally meant to cripple AMD processors) against Intel when it comes to benchmarks.

Apple gets so much cred for being "innovative", but more than anything they spend their cash-reserves on buying existing technology that has been developed for a decade or more.

Dump 5G and focus more on 6G instead.

Let Apply buy the smartphone modem business from Intel. Intel & GlobalFoundries needed more funds for 10nm or 7nm.

AMD totally murdered Intel with the release of 7nm 3rd Gen Ryzen so Intel should really do something to keep them afloat altogether.

next year:
Apple: "we developed and created best 5G modem on the market!"

Hope they are readyto pay royalties as well.

smart move on apples part. Intel's 5G modem tested many times to be the most stable ever produced. Intel in fact spent years developing it, and spent so much money on r&d I doubt intel will even make much profit on the business, if any.
