The Intel saga continues with Windows 11 and Alder Lake CPU. If you watch the recent news of Apple releasing the M1 Max Arm based chip where it is practically 4x time faster than their year old M1 chip. It is fast, but it matters for those in the Mac ecosystem system only. If you look at the overall market share, the majority of the desktop and laptop is Windows based. May not be exactly WinTel (Windows and Intel chip based), but it for sure is Windows + x86 architecture based, and under the open standard allow various of producer to make their product to run, be it supported for nVidia market leading graphical card for 3d acceleration whether for the consumer gaming to industrial gpu intensive application and industry workstations.
As everyone expected, Windows 11 generation is coming, and Intel will have the new Alder Lake CPU which is arm based, up to 32 core and 64gb memory just as what Apple M1 Max recently led and launched. As long as the market remains as it is, with the new wave of the wintel alliances we can make sure it is more ideal for most of the users across consumer to business and industrial. Since you depend on the applications that matter the most for you to carry out your day to day routine. For most of the people, business productivity, first choice is laptop or desktop, and for the business application in concern and variety of the applications, regardless of how Apple iOS/Mac is advertised, Windows vs Mac/iOS % of really classify as business applications to be use for business productivity, remain the edge of the Wintel platform, as long as Wintel have relative on par offering, due to ecosystems they command, consumers and business is have more variety of choice for various budget fit solutions they can get. The world moving forward, will it be easier for a single vendor to lock down and do everything, or more easier for success to cooperate and collaborate with the rest of the world’s vendors together? Not all consumers and businesses prefer to be single vendor locked down, due to bargaining power issues, the bigger you are, the less you are likely to prefer a single vendor to serve you on that risk management matter.
When it comes to the niche market, single end to end may work, but if you want to scale, maybe open standard vendors and producers are much easier to win.
