control the hardware and peripherals that are compatible. I think not having a wild wild west of cheap crap machines, and shitty peripherals with shoddy drivers that was often incompatible with the hardware. They could control and make it a tighter integration that can't be ridiculed and shortchanged like the Windows and PC architecture of the 90's and early 2000's.
I miss having a tower that can last the ages, and be used throughout many upgrades. I miss new peripherals, and cards that can expand the computer.
I think you just described the Macintosh.
10nm has been a disaster for Intel. They’ve been ramping for 5yrs but can’t achieve any acceptable level of yield.
The crazy part is high-end graphics card prices. I love playing games, but it's hard to justify graphics card upgrades when they are kept artificially high by Bitcoin/ecoin mining.
BayArea says10nm has been a disaster for Intel. They’ve been ramping for 5yrs but can’t achieve any acceptable level of yield.That's on purpose. I'm sure the companies they are contracting to make their chips, keep screwing up their progress while making sure their competitors chips ship on time. I've been watching some old series on YouTube from the late 90's that talked about the Japanese Tech rise. And the games the manufacturers would play with their clients, and help one win over the other.
Intel makes their own chips
we leave all of the dirty pollution that goes with making Chips up to Chinese, Indian and Malaysian
