Not yet taped out!? That can't be right. If this was an IDM product maybe Intel could pull a rabbit out of a hat for 2-3 month launch (still not likely), but these are fabbed at TSMC, no?

Could be that they thought they had taped out, found a couple of bugs during driver development using qualification silicon, couldn't find a viable work-around for some of the bugs and had to do a hardware revision.

Let's hope its a quick turn around. I'm rooting for Intel if for no other reason than to have a 3rd option to reset the field. If their timeline pushes back into Lovelace and rdna3 launches I fear Arc will be dead before it begins.
