A supplier can't meet demand preventing a vendor from meeting expectations. Every other vendor that's supplied by Intel is also in the same boat but they are able to use a different supplier(AMD). I wouldn't be shocked if we see Ryzen based Macs with their next refresh. Having a Vega iGPU would be pretty sweet.

And their terrible designs and even worse quality that causes the need for the repairs. Junk. Absolute and complete junk.

I also think most apple customers don't base their purchase decisions on performance benchmarks. At least, they're not comparing it to PCs, they're comparing it to their old machine.
More realistically they will go with a hybrid approach having an ARM based processor for battery or lighter loads and firing up an x86 chip for legacy support or software that needs it. At that point it becomes a software and integration problem.

I could dream up some speculation involving an AMD custom design that uses chiplets providing x86, gpu and then somehow integrating apples ARM based chip on one package. Probably not realistic, but that would provide a platform I could get behind if it all worked seamlessly.

Right. Apple's problem is Intel. I believe that.


I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
