Which is sort of where I am going with this. By making all of their product line as chiplets, and having few I/O ones, AMD can offer a set of packaging services for customers that have enough volume. Outside vendors of other IP like networking, can produce chiplets with Infinity Fabric interconnects or maybe just PCIe X.Y that can be packaged along with AMD chiplets. Eventually others can do the same. Right now there are only two companies that can do this. Hopefully there could be more.

It would be nice to be able to go to a website and being able to select the chiplets and socket type you want. The company then would place and route it for you. A few weeks later you get some boxes with your design. I see no real reason it couldn't be done automatically.

With HBM, the circuit board would be reduced to low speed peripherals, connectors and power management.

Interestingly for those who don't know the I O chips from AMD start with all available interfaces for memory drives Etc and when some function of the chip is defective it is binned to the functions that are not defective. Making the yeild superb. This blew my mind.

Navi seems popular with miners. Rome should have some long coat tails. Not a lot to say.

"Apple is also reportedly building its own 5G chips to launch in either 2022 or 2023, according to Kuo."
cnbc.com

"Kuo said that two of the 2020 iPhones will use Qualcomm’s 5G modem after the two companies settled a long-standing lawsuit in April."

Now we kinda know why Apple settled. It's all about 5G. The trade war, the settlement etc. 5G is everything.

Ultra-segmentation and Fab-Heavy must be really hurting Intel right now...

Yeah, I'm wondering about the fab-heavy part. Could this delay be the tip of the iceberg on Intel turning to external fabs?

What didn't make sense was if its only 6-12 months push out, why did they tell the subs they could back out completely?
