Intel won't support AMD SSE5

Intel's Pat Gelsinger said at the IDF that his firm has no intention to support AMD's upcoming SSE5 instruction set:
Pat explained that basically the difference between him and Ms Gunn is that she was into mainframes while was a PC person. Perhaps more interestingly, he said that AMD had forked by introducing SSE5. Intel has no intention whatever to support SSE5, he said.

We also heard yesterday from Intel people about how they were going to put graphics transistors on the same die as the CPU. Intel first told me in 1990 at Augsburg, Germany, that it would have graphics transistors on the same die as a CPU in 1990.
