3D Xpoint was launched to great hype, but never met expectations. Now it looks like Intel is getting out. Thoughts?
It will be interesting to know who is going to own the IP and if Intel will continue on their own after the split. Any further info on this would be appreciated. From the conference call, it seem MU will own the IP.
Micron’s statement is a pre-announcement. They can’t officially make the call until January 1, 2019. The operation of the IMFT factory would not change until after the close of the call, which is at Intel’s discretion for up to one year. There is no near-term change to Intel’s plans in the coming quarters—this has been part of our planning for some time now. Intel has a number of manufacturing options available to us within the time window. We’ve been shipping a broad portfolio of Intel Optane technology products for over a year with a continually expanding product line. We will continue to lead the industry with this exciting new technology.
