Monocultures hardly breed innovation.

Oh yeah. Intel monopoly is definitely not.

You can see desktop Haswell is barely faster than 2yo SandyBrigde, and sometimes slower than Ivy. Once again the motherboard is not compatible. Whopping 3% speedup is definitely worth that price.

ARM universe has a long forgotten thing called competition, while x86 has only one player (AMD is not even considered as viable player by Intel itself).
