43. Re: Intel Killing Off Desktop/Enthusiast PCs? Nov 27, 2012, 13:27 Topevoli

If Intel goes this route, cutting out all 3rd party mobo makers, and AMD tanks (as is looking more probable), how likely is it that DOJ will step in and break apart Intel? They would be the only player in the desktop/laptop/server market for procs and mobos.

I think the issue is more to do with x86 licencing than with Intel as a company. ARM is a very capable chip maker but does not have the rights (as far as I am aware) to design an x86 chip.

And its not all about the high end. No one would raise monopoly issues if Ferrari were the only super car. As long as there are Chevy's Renault's and Fords that satisfy the majority.
