AMD denies claims that they handed the 'keys of the kingdom' to China

Did AMD hand China the keys to the US' x86 technology?



Read more about AMD's denial of claims that they handed the "keys to the [x86] kingdom" to China.

Typical WSJ, best use of their writing would be for fiction.
The thing with this sort of thing is you either licence it or wait for your tech to be copied, repackaged and then sold over here cheap. Right move IMO.

As far as we can tell and going from the products released, this licensing agreement was at the mask set & wafer level, rather than the HDL level. So a software analogy would be, this is like them sharing some binary data blobs rather than the source code(And they just thrown their own cryptographic unit on alongside). Attempting to reverse engineer the technology without the HDL for something that contains millions of logic gates would be pretty insane to attempt even for the Chinese.

suspect timing

I wonder if we would see some Intel execs fingerprints behind this story.

Nah, Intel have nothing to gain and lots to lose from stories like this, they've taken a lot of flak themselves from the US govt. over their deals with China. They seem to be going for more or less all the high value companies & industries in this trade war and it's undoubtedly harming both sides in the lost trade & sharing & progression of technology.
