Think they'd keep the CPU's locked, hehe.
honestly, this would be a smart move for apple. Intel has the manufacturing capacity to make sure that there is never a shortage of the chips, something TSMC has a horrible track record of
Not gonna lie... Apples choices can be more than a little confusing at times, the products they put out right now are quality so as long as that's maintained or improved through supplier switches, on the consumer end its no big deal but what's the overall impact of things like this on suppliers and others?
For example AMD's recent declines could have something to do with behind the scenes changes with suppliers
This really doesn't surprise me. Intel is trying to dominate the market. This was predictable. Intel has always been trying to incoporate everything onto their CPU's, such as memory control, PCI lane control, all sorts of things! And it basically just leaves Intel all the room in the world to work with, and then all the third party companies that designed all the things Intel has now made onboard, go out of business!
This is a good move for Intel, and most likely for Apple as well, but just the fact that this is happening, does make me worry. I trust Intel to provide an excellent experience, but I don't want them to have a monopoly on everything.
Didnt they just say a few weeks ago they are moving away from intel?
Do a google search and you can see.
Bet they are doing it because of Microsoft using Intel on the Surface tablets.
Wouldn't it be funny in Samsung don't end up paying 1 billion and now apple are paying 20% more for everything :P god please let that happen heheheh
