[Beowulf] Intel Storm on the Horizon ?

I think this has been oncoming for a while. While Intel has been doing the
Tick-Tock march for a while they have also been bringing in new concepts to
get avoid hitting a wall with the architecture.

First it was single to dual to multi-core. Next was pulling devices into
the die. HBM slated to come into the die. Where do you go from there if
physics is fighting you at ≤10nm?

I think we're looking at a repeat of 2003, AMD is about to start eating
their lunch for a while.

Just one guy's opinion, and you know what they say about opinions...
