    Yes, I would also take it personal when they banished CPU bench marking and resign.

    Currently releasing CPUs won't have anything to do with Keller's recent, and brief, time there. Whatever he had input on will show up in the next couple years, I imagine. (And when it does, benchmarking will suddenly be back on the agenda..)

    The weird thing is there's one single person in the world who actually knows ho to design an x86 microprocessor.
    Other engineers merely know how to keep improving upon existing designs.

    I'm sure that if the x86 architecture were designed today, it wouldn't be anywhere near as popular...so I'm GLAD that only one person in the world knows how to design one
