If 90% of the target market (e.g. desktop/laptop/actual computers running Windows, MacOS, or Linux) is Intel, you're probably not going to completely change the way you code to make stuff faster on AMD.

its not an all or nothing proposition.. you have to think of this realistically and practically rather than abstract absolutes

there could be partial adoption, or the tech might get cloned, etc.

i have no interest in the AMD vs intel argument.. i buy intel myself, because i use a bunch of multimedia software that is optimized for it.. but i could care less who is "on top"

the main thing is the concept.. i think ultimately the future of computers is going this way (and away from discrete processors), someone has to make mistakes so they can make progress, and i think its a good thing someone is still pursuing it
