A conclusion not articulated by the article itself is that the IDM model becomes even more desirable for those who can economically afford and sustain it. Chip desingers which can keep financing cutting edge process R&D and manufacturing will increasingly levarage the integrated model unless they badly screw up on the architectural side.

Is this knowledge priced into the INTC vs. AMD vs. ARM world expectations? Don`t think so. OTOH, it is interesting to see how limited market impact IBM has with Power7 no matter how big an engineering success it is.
