Let's see if it passes the smell test. "Past consensual relationship" = It's not occurring in the present. But what problems are occurring in the present?

No 10nm product for Intel? The CEO at Intel acknowledged (a few days ago) an expected future loss of 20% Data center market share to AMD (where AMD previously had less than 1%). At the Computex tech conference two weeks ago, Intel showed off an overclocked, 3300 watt (including phase-change water cooling) 28 Core system, propped up to look like it would be a consumer item (to be available at the end of the year).

This was then superceded one day later by AMD's demo of an air-cooled 32 core ThreadRipper 2, which will be out in August and will only consume 250 watts.

The "past affair" is either a complete fabrication or "the reason for the press"-story while the Intel board fires him for his failings, while at the same time the Intel board gets to protect their share price (could you imagine what would happen to Intel's share price if for once the truth was allowed to escape from Intel: "we're firing our CEO for losing our competitive edge in the market" ?

AMD's stock went down quite a bit today (in a down market for sure) but it mirrored about 5x the percentage drop of NASDAQ, but only every time NASDAQ went down. I wouldn't put it past Intel to have called up some of their cronies at Goldman or MorganStan and encouraged some short-selling of AMD stock to provide another layer of distraction from Intel's stagnation. AMDs stock also dropped 2x the percentage amount that Intel did, while AMD has only positive news for the immediate future, so you know who is protecting whom.

Nothing changes for me. I only run AMD hardware on my systems our customers' systems and am looking forward to the AMD EPYC 7NM, 64-core, server CPU that is sampling later this year for less than 1/3 the price of Intel's "best" (with 36 less cores than AMD's) server.

No one has a true 10nm product, only parts of the chip are that size.

3,300 Watts seems to be accurate for the complete setup (CPU + Cooler). Cooler draws 1,000 Watts to 1,700 watts and the Power supply for the CPU was a 1600 Watt power supply. So 2,600 - 3,300 Watts.

From extremetech.com "The cooler Intel used, a Hailea HC-1000B, draws more than 1,000W of power for its own operation, which apparently precluded running both the CPU and the chiller simultaneously. The Hailea HC-1000B’s output of 1500-4000L of chilled water (as cold as 4 degrees Celsius) is matched by its ability to cool a system of some 1700W of dissipation. Anand reports that a 1600W Corsair PSU was used to power the machine. That’s a $469 PSU all on its own."

Also read on a site where Intel could not show the machine off at a standard booth because they didn't have a 110V (Computer) and a 220V (Cooler) circuits available. Not quite plug and play.

Isn't this the same asshole that inside traded and sold almost all his shares and held the bare minimum required to hold that executive position just DAYS after the meltdown/Spectre exploits we're reported to Intel?

He was recently credited with containing the fallout from the disclosure of some security flaws in the company's chips that could allow hackers to steal data from computers, although his sale of some Intel stock before the flaws were disclosed to investors attracted some criticism.

Yup. This one is all yours #MeToo. Fuck this Jew with a hot rusty poker

I don't think he's a Jew. Would like to see evidence if he is.

We think of ourselves as an Israeli company as much as a US company

You have to file in advance to sell off your shares. So, the questions are, how far in advance did the CEO know this exploit existed, the extent of damage it could cause, and when it would be released.

However, the filing also notes that Krzanich adopted the plan just a month before the sales, on Oct. 30, 2017. According to researchers, Intel and other chip makers were informed June 1, 2017, about dual vulnerabilities named Meltdown and Spectre, one inherent in Intel chips and another baked into all CPUs.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in late November, Intel INTC, -2.38% disclosed that Krzanich had sold hundreds of thousands of shares that he previously owned and that he had acquired as stock options.

The vulnerabilities were publicly disclosed near the beginning of January 2018

How he was not fined and banned from serving in further c-level positions for insider trading just tells you how many sheckles we're at stake. If he's not a Jew by blood, he's one by practice. After all, Intel is an Israeli based company

Or is this the excuse used since he/intel are going to cede about 20% of the server market to AMD?

Like I always said, the only way to remove someone from power is a shit sexual relationship scandal.

"An ongoing investigation by internal and external counsel"

Probably conducted through the Management Engine backdoor in his own Intel™ CPU, no less.

Dude is pulling 21 million in total compensation and he has to chuck it to bend a minion over his/her desk for some office nookie.

Unbelievable.

You'd think they could've just had her sign a document stating the relationship was not in any way coerced. Literally the first sentence of the article says it was consensual, so who the fuck cares. As the article points out, this is probably influenced by #MeToo and the pansy corporate reactions to it.

IIRC, Intel has a non-fraternization policy that states any relationships such as this are forbidden. If he violated that policy, it doesn't matter if it's consensual, it's a fireable offense.

I doubt this is the reason, it's an obvious cover.
