Will they use Intel SoCs? I hope Intel will get in shape at last. ARM SoC scene is sickening, with no open GPU drivers in sight, which requires glibc based Linux systems to resort to libhybris hacks. With Intel that can be avoided.

Not necessarily, see Secureboot. Being Intel by no means guarantees a more open firmware when there's no need whatsoever for legacy PC support.
