AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

Apple's CPU suppliers had other businesses besides CPUs, and they weren't as focused as Intel is.

MS and Intel wouldn't have to compete directly. MS could use Intel consultants and fabs. Plus, the two have a long history, so I would expect it to be more of a mutual thing rather than antagonistic.
