Intel An interesting article at Ars Technica takes a look at some compelling data (the longer-than-normal processor update cycles in Apple's personal computer lineup) and speculates that Apple's enthusiasm for its partnership with Intel might be cooling. Like Apple's soured relationship with once-BFF Google, this may be the result of Intel's increasing activities in the mobile computing space.

Sure it will end badly. No doubt about that. Might go on for a few more years, but once ARM CPUs have 3GHz and 16 cores the typical Apple fan will not care. IOS will replace MacOS eventually. Apple only cares for products with high margins or a possibly big future.

And I would buy a new CPU from AMD once they have AES accelleration like new Intel CPUs. That is a killer feature for encrypted SSD drives IMHO.
