News on the EUV front...

AFAIK, EUV is not being used in production anywhere. Well, it depends on how you define production. EUV can be, and again AFAIK is being used to manufacture masks, but double and quad exposure techniques are better suited for 23-32 nm and 13-17 nm [more]

Re: Financial Analysts Day

Meaning what, Seattle is worth pushing out there for more than just an initial development target, or they're just going to kill time until Zen is out and they can focus on K12?

Re: INTC in talks to buy ALTR

Re: Will DirectX 12 kill Mantle?

Sounds like AMD will no longer develop Mantle in its current form. Maybe glNext is very close to Mantle and AMD will support it instead?
