I am posting this question because I am not a hardware engineer. Apple's switching from Qualcomm chip to one from Intel
If the answer is yes, then in what way Intel's chip is better?
Does it have better reception? Does it run faster? Does it use less power?
I don't think it matters if Intel is better, I think they're circling the wagons to protect themselves from competition. Moore's Law is stuttering and at some point people will realize that more expensive doesn't always equate to better.
Intel and Apple are 2 companies that like to charge a ton for slightly better hardware and software and that ability is like a drug to them. They want just...one...more...toke...off the pipe of high prices.
