I've known - and worked with - a lot of very confident people over the course of 30+ years.
And I've been lucky enough to work with a smaller number of people who actually knew what they were doing.
There isn't an obvious correlation between competence and confidence. In fact, the people
who knew what they were doing had a really long list of potential problems with what they were
doing, and weren't afraid to discuss those.

Not what I said. *Something* could work, but not static scheduling, which has repeatedly
failed to solve the problem.

Not what I said. By all means keep trying *new* approaches. What's crazy is to keep trying
static-scheduling, which has repeatedly failed, in an environment where the penalties for a bad
schedule are much much worse than ever before.

And that claim would be a "show me"; except they've had 10+ years to show evidence and they've
got nothing. And the claim is implausible on its face: code with unpredictable behavior
needs to execute well whether you guessed right at compile time or not, and an in-order static-
schedule machine has to optimize for one set of predictions.

Nvidia Denver ? Here's what anandtech said about it:

"NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 with Denver is effectively the state of the art when it comes to SoCs in the Android OEM space, and no other device has launched with this SoC. While the fact that the SoC is built around the ARMv8 ISA is important, the architecture of the CPU itself is easily one of the most interesting designs we’ve seen in years. Unfortunately, while the design of the CPU is academically interesting it doesn’t seem that this produces real-world benefits. The Nexus 9 has one of the fastest SoCs we’ve seen to date, but this comes at the cost of worse power efficiency than the Cortex A15 version of the Tegra K1"

And Elbrus is not a player in any market I'm aware of.

I don't know their personal situations. A lot of people consider designing cpus to be
fun. And even more people are immune to the sunk cost fallacy, and unwilling to admit that
they've spent a long time working on something that ought to be thrown away. People -
myself included - often act irrationally. But a bad idea is a bad idea even if someone
has spent tens of man-years and/or millions of dollars on it.

It's their choice - if the scratchpad is small and slow, it's a bottleneck; if it's big and
fast, it's as power-hungry as registers. Either way it hasn't solved any interesting problem.
