Intel Corporation today announced its intention to exit the 5G smartphone modem business and complete an assessment of the opportunities for 4G and 5G modems in PCs, internet of things devices and other data-centric devices. Intel will also continue to invest in its 5G network infrastructure business. The company will continue to meet current customer commitments for its existing 4G smartphone modem product line, but does not expect to launch 5G modem products in the smartphone space, including those originally planned for launches in 2020.
 
The settlement yesterday between Qualcomm and Apple basically destroyed Intel's 5G modem hardware investments since Apple would have been it's main customer. 

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080 Black

    I kind of would rather see Apple work with Intel instead of Qualcomm. Glad to at least see them working on the infrastructure..
