I would say they have embraced and extended ARM so as to make it "not ARM" anymore though. It's their own thing. Much like MacOS and any suggestion with regards to its roots.
"Evolution of ARM"? I suppose, but ARM that nobody but Apple can have.
Company: You can make exceptions to our standard issue laptops on approval.
Employee: I require the Dragon's Breath 21" Mega Monster RGB Special Edition 8K with built-in smoke, 32GB, 2TB NVMe and 3090 (mobile) please. I need it for productivity work. The normal laptop can't handle the...
My point is that M1 and M2 are Apple only things.
Just as I'm moderately interested in IBM Power or Oracle Sun Sparc or Intel Itanium.
Edit: Becomes a bit more interesting with the Linux port, which is pretty early on. But even still it's much like the following:
Do you have Linux ported...
We ran oVirt and I could totally do more with it and faster than anything VMware has. VMware is old. It hasn't changed all that much from 10 years ago (or more). Just saying.
There's a ton of advantages in not choosing VMware. I think if you really talk to people that have truly used...
Well, maybe if your annual bill for VMware is in the hundreds of millions (which isn't hard to imagine with VMware pricing). I'd say your statement is "false". Lots of business either went to cloud (which is bigger than big on virtualization and doesn't run on VMware) or moved to something KVM...
MS Grunt: "I think we should name our office products Word, Excel, Powerpoint!"
MS Exec: Those sound ok.
MS Grunt: "I want a raise."
MS Exec: No. And there's the door.
MS Exec: I think I'll call our new embedded OS, CE... Windows CE, or WinCE for short. Yeah, now that's a good name.
You only need a absolutely crappy card or whatever for QSV. Maybe that is their goal (to not compete at all with anyone), but I think that's unlikely. My point is, not sure Intel is trying to create 25W cards for servers as part of this, but I could be wrong.
Perhaps, but it would take this kind of "forced" (coercion) style to make it happen. And that's not nice. Regardless, if AV1 encoding becomes a "universal" requirement, look for the competition to support it quickly, which also means that at best, Intel has a very very short lived presence...
Timing is everything. And now, after all the delay, missing the "shortage" boat, now AMD is going to have GPUs on most all their desktop CPUs. Again, timing is everything. Intel missed a big window of opportunity. Have a feeling Intel may have just bricked their product before delivery.
My recent VMware support is like:
"Did that work?"
"How about now?"
"Try this. Now?"
"I don't see how this will help, how about now?"
Yes... seems like it's working.
"Hmmm... ok... I'm going to mark the ticket closed, make sure you give us a great rating."
I get it 16:9, it's all you've every had... I get it. You'll just have to trust me (and I can't believe I have to say this), more is better. We took a huge step backwards when the "HD" revolution took place, we were so much more ahead of that.
VMware Workstation isn't what I'd call an enterprise hypervisor, it's Type 2. It's an old (very old now) way to create VMs for desktop users.
You could use Linux and Linux KVM and still have a full desktop plus a real Type 1 hypervisor with about a 1% degradation (if that much)
Will VMs lag...
