Years in the making

Swan is taking the fall for the manufacturing issues at Intel. However, the development cycle from Rev99 base initial process to a production process rolled out to Intel's "virtual factory" runs about 4 years at the minimum. I know because I worked there.

There are more fundamental problems with the development team and Intel's divisional cpu architecture. These have not been addressed by the head swapping.
