"The move is a major commitment by Microsoft to supplying itself with the most important piece of the hardware it uses. Cloud-computing rivals such as Amazon.com Inc. are already well down the road with similar efforts. They've argued their chips are better suited to some of their needs, bringing cost and performance advantages over off-the-shelf silicon primarily provided by Intel."

"Microsoft currently uses Arm-based chips from Qualcomm in some of its Surface PCs. It ported Windows to work on these types of chips, which have typically been used in smartphones. Apple also uses Arm technology in its processors."

If they design them anyway like their OS, windows.. I'll pass .. I'd rather use an old atari gaming console than windows..

 

+1 Their OS is a mess IMHO so I expect their chip to be as well - nt, posted on January 4, 2021 at 11:59:52
