Intel's so far ahead of AMD, they have to roll back the clocks in order to stay competitive.
AMD isn't Intel's competition. Intel needs AMD to prevent Anti-Trust litigation. Intel's competition is ARM and all the OEM's who use ARM based chips. Especially if Microsoft ports full Windows 10 to the ARM. The big draw of ARM is performance/price per watt which is exactly what Intel is shooting for.
From the abstract: "Through this pilot project, Roadtrip Nation will lay the groundwork and provide proof-of-concept for a CS Roadtrip, leveraging a combination of multimedia deliverables, an evidence-based educational curriculum, and dynamic engagement strategies (a triple score!!!) that will provide critical connections between students' natural interests, positive role models who align with those interests, and corresponding CS educational and career pathways. To that end, the CS Roadtrip Pilot will develop up to four student-facing videos that feature the stories of diverse computing professionals, appropriate for on-air, online, and classroom purposes, along with the appropriate Learning Guides."
This sure reads like a marketing pitch at an ISV. This should be part of next week's Dilbert run.
