Add to that, there are some leaks going around showing the next Qualcomm 8cx being about 75% as fast as an i7 gen11 on single threaded and just as good on multi. Now, I don't doubt Apple has some good CPU designers, they have a pretty good track record. Qualcomm, not so much compared to Apple, and even they come in striking distance. So I'll call your Apple and raise with Qualcomm as potential rivals in the next few years. AMD too for sure.It seems like intel is in deep denial after Apple broke up with them. If only they could ramp up their fabs quick enough to get ahead of the current capacity issues from TSMC but alas, This might at best give em a leg up on AMD. The looming threat at this point imo, it's still Apple.
