FWIW, the only places i could find idiot in this thread are Phil's single post. /shrug
I'm also unsure about what he's gloating about, because to my recollection phildoe made at least four different predictions:
1) Intel will (IP) license AMD GPU tech (literal thread title)
2) Intel will make a MCM with AMD chips (OP)
3) Intel cut its graphics team because they getting out of doing iGPUs in favor of AMD
4) AMD will spin-off RTG (implicitly because it's going to get in bed with Intel)
Yes, bullet point 2 happened. But, uh, that wasn't really what everyone was objecting to:
But it only pertainins to a possible IP licensing deal, in regards to patents.
That's an altogether different sort of endeavor (if you can even call it that) than "AMD and Intel working together on something."
I don't think *anyone* really took a stand against two.
In fact, I explicitly made the point that AMD & Intel and "License agreement" weren't just different things, but actually kinda mutually exclusive:
It was not a license to make Nvidia GPUs or incorporate their specific designs into Intel-branded products. You know, because, uh, Intel obviously didn't?
So, if your cite is correct and this "GPU license" replaces the previous agreement with Nvidia, that's actually evidence against all your suppositions about product designs and so forth, *not* vindication.
It's simple, if IP "licenses the tech" why would they then pay AMD to supply the discrete chips? It's basically one or the other, and philldoe was actually arguing the former.
But now that the latter has happened, oh, he was arguing for the latter.
