Building notes, projects, and occasional rants

Why Intel?

Let’s say that I buy into all this stuff about Apple switching to x86 chips. I don’t, but let’s assume I do.

Why Intel? Why? Why not Opteron? It’s a superior architecture, and the PowerMacs already use HyperTransport…

Well, will soon find out what this is all about. The only sure thing I know, is that Jobs does not announce the switch to x86 chips next week, CNet and other will have a lot of explaining to do to it’s readers :).
