Intel doesn’t have the luxury of leaving their game — they only
have one. But I can’t imagine that Brian Krzanich, Intel’s new
CEO, will look at Peak PC and be content with the prospect of
increasingly difficult x86 iterations. There have been many
discussions of Intel finally taking the plunge and becoming a
“foundry” for someone else’s ARM-based SoC (System On a Chip)
designs instead of owning x86 design and manufacturing decisions.
Peak PC will force Intel CEO’s hand.
