System On Chip (SoC) the future of endpoint computing, across desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone endpoint computing devices. Apple and nVidia already demonstrate how powerful it can be with the various of their product launches in the market. Where Apple is expected to launch the M2 generation and complete transition away from Intel in 2022. How Apple transforms their Mac Pro product line is yet to be seen in 2022. But the rest of the transition is completed.
Single System On Chip (SoC) include the cpu, memory, gpu, all in one, make the overall size of the device can be further reduce further, no to mentioned economic of scales combine the cross ranges of devices all power with the same chip, and can bring down the cost and make it even more competitive to the market to consider. Laptop for almost the whole day long without needing power charge, to let users truly mobility, it is something Intel or AMD power CPUs can never be possible. Apple M1 power device makes it become their iOS power device for tablet and smartphone for whole day long power.
While the industry remains shortages of part and component make cpu, gpu continues to rise, making it cost competitive for Apple M1 or coming M2 device in the market eye, all in one. For most of the industry and sector, endpoint computing needs are shiftable, as more and more applications are available cross platform, or offered in cloud, regardless of what on premise device you are using.
Just like in the past Intel is missing the huge market of the mobile device CPU market, the next generation of CPU under the SOC, will make an impact on the traditional endpoint computing. As more and more operating systems now officially support SOC, it makes the Intel/AMD cpu and architecture may not be that matters for most of the users. Not to mention the variety of virtualization solutions in place, to make it can run almost all kinds of operating systems in the SOC. The longer the shortage and price rise will be in the Intel, AMD, GPU maker to be, the likelihood for SOC based vendors like Apple to market their product successfully. Are you prepared to welcome an SOC device as your enterprise endpoint computing device? If you have yet to consider, it is time to think about it.
