Intel FELT threatened by ARM in LOW-POWER Thermal envelopes. ARM is good at them but not in High thermal envelopes. All of its advantages from being designed for low-power are being mitigated in High-Thermal envelopes, and that is no speculation, that is a fact.Intel built really good ARM CPU back in the day in the name of Xscale. At that time it was the best ARM chip just like how Apple doing it right now.
They are really good indeed and even better than their later designed Atom CPUs under same power envelope.
Intel feared ARM advantage will kill its x86 monopoly so they stop the development and sold the design to Marvell.
Intel themself feel threatened by ARM and you still blindly believe into their 40 years legacy technology.
x86 for High-Performance will be the solution for the foreseeable future despite anything people will say about it. I was for ARM, heck I was ARM fanboy, back in the day, but since we're in 2020 and there is no ARM solution that can come close in terms of Clock speeds, core counts, for high-thermal envelopes. ARM and x86 can coegsist, but one will not replace the other.
P.S. If Intel felt threatened by ARM, why AMD does not feel that way, at all?
