  • Why are there only 2 CPU companies? The fk? There are more than 2 AMD Intel Apple Qualcomm ARM Raspberry Pi CPU Runs on Arm Architecture which is technically running on a 1.6 Ghz CPU which is not intel or amd. There are also some russian CPU makers and chineese CPU makers. You don't hear about them because these CPUs are designed for IOT products, are much more efficient at doing 1 task.

  • There are actually 3 right now with Apple making their own silicon with the M1 chip. That will greatly evolve over time and even outperform the competition in a lot of ways as it’s already doing. Yes they do not manufacturer for others but regardless they still are a CPU/GPU chip manufacturer

  • Why don't NVidia and AMD just take the insane money they are making from these miners buying everything, and speed up the development of their own microchip foundries? Get 5nm plants built THIS YEAR! The ONLY thing stopping them producing more graphics cards and CPUs than even all the miners could buy, is the speed that they can get their hands on the chips to make their stuff. If they poured in a few million into faster foundry production, not only would they be able to take FULL advantage of the demand NOW, making more money than they could dream of (which should be a good enough incentive for them to do it), they would also make us happy, and spank the scalpers by flooding the market with so many devices that the scalpers are left with stock they cant sell, and a lesson learned about being greedy! The games industry would also be grateful to stop the devolution in hardware that people are currently having to settle for, which stops them making better games! Its a win for everyone except the flaming scalpers! Use you influence and lean on AMD and NVidia - it just makes sense NOW!

    • It's an "accepted" idea that it takes maybe 3 or 4 years to plan, develop, design, & construct a foundry. But the foundry talked about in this link, for AMD & NVidia, has already finished all but one of those steps - they are in the construction stage, which has already started! According to this article it will be ready by 2024, so why could't they just bring in more people and make it faster? www.pcgamer.com/uk/tsmc-in-the-desert-with-the-silicon-wafer/

  • The cruel reality is that microelectronics was invented in Italy and USA at the same time; and was developed and produced only in the USA in a first phase. Since it was a great revolution, it was used since the beginning as a weapon to simply strike the global market and prevail in the international scenery. Prevail economically doesn't differ much from prevailing militarily. Therefore, it was basically used as a terrific weapon. In fact, most electronic standards and Internet itself are from the USA (ex.: ASCII --> American Standard Code for Information Interchange). This also explains the actual tensions within the relationships between the USA and China (Huawei is a good competitor).

  • It's not true that are only "two" companies which makes CPU. In fact there are several other companies that does that for instance ARM, Nvidia, Qualcomm etc. Sure these are dedicated processors to be used in equipments other than computers mother boards but these still can be used as CPUs. There are even gaming PCs projects based on ARM processors.

  • IMO you understate the significance of the M1 Processor. It’s the new kid on the block sure, but it seems to have the likely potential to sink x86 processors. It is already posting impressive x86 emulation scores. We can only expect it to improve. While having such power and heat benefits it’s possiable that x86 has started its end of life.

  • Fun fact, Cyrix made faster FPU than Intel at the 387 and 487 time. When they release their pentium compatible CPU (the 6x86) they integrated the same FPU than before, except Intel reviewed its architecture in the same time

  • Why're there only two CPU companies? There isn't. Such CPU companies include: Samsung, Nvidia, Apple and Qualcomm. Via, once direct competitor to Intel and AMD, still sells CPUs as well. There is also IBM who makes POWER and Sony who spun that off to make Cell. ... At the smartphone level you now have non-intel CPUs like Apple's or Qualcomm's.

  • Before the IBM PC, there was another CPU manufacturer maker that was in just about all the computers people were able to afford. In the early to mid 80s this chip vastly out-sold the IBM and clone machines. Yes, it was the 6502, and variants from MOS technologies. The 6502 was in the: Commodore 64 Commodore PET Apple II series Atari 8 bit line Atari 2600/5200/7800 Nintendo BBC Micro So the early history is quite a bit more complicated. In the early days in the 80s the 6502 machines vastly outsold the IBM clones. PCs won the war for a variety of reasons, but if history had worked out a bit differently, we might all have had ancestors of the 6502 in modern computers rather than ancestors of the 8088.
