I've been involved in many of Intel's flagship processors from the past few years and working on the next generation. More specifically, Nehalem (45nm), Westmere (32nm), Haswell (22nm), and Broadwell (14nm).

In technical aspects, I've been involved in planning, architecture, logic design, circuit design, layout, pre- and post-silicon validation. I've also been involved in hiring and liaising with university research groups.

I'll try to answer in appropriate, non-Confidential detail any question. Any question is fair.

And please note that any opinions are mine and mine alone.

Thanks, pretty interesting.

The guy says later that he reads Tech Report also. :D
