It was my impression that PPC/RISC chips Apple just ran too damn hot. I melted one in my dual gig, part of that was apple's stone stupid cooling design (exhaust on the bottom, chip on the top, video card blocking any cool air from getting to the daughter card) but they were hot enough to cook eggs. I'd avoid using it on very hot days. Speeds had gotten high enough Apple traded performance for cooler chips, particularly in notebooks which were replacing desktops in large numbers.

But my 2.8 i7 runs damn hot too, I worry about that a lot, and Apple under Ive seemed to be too obsessed with thinness to address the heat issue. I worry that dust bunnies inside my iMac block air flow.

It seems to me heat is still an issue, and I believe its a function of the size of the etchings so less nm means cooler. Plus its obviously going to be better for Apple to write code for one chip than two.

I would think that it had to be Intel's architecture that is holding them back. The chip foundries buy their machines from 3rd parties don't they? If so one foundry should be able to make the same sized channels as another unless there are just too many channels, zig zags and what ever lives at the nanometer level.

Yeah. Those zig zags can be killer!

I'm running Windows 10 on a bootcamp partition and during the day I'm constantly getting GPU overheating warnings.

Know I live in the tropics and it's hot but the cooling system should be better.

Most likely I'm going to have to build a liquid cooled PC just for my streaming stuff.

Apple could morph their TV box into a mainstream gaming console by increasing performance and using AI subunits. By defining their own version of a gaming console, Apple can leverage their own ecosystem and the user doesn't have to mess around with Sony and Microsoft's monstrosities.

Intel ‘Stunning Failure’ Heralds End of Era for U.S. Chip Sector

I expected this to happen eventually. I saw it coming way back in the 90s. Our domestic consumer technology companies can't compete with defense companies for talent. They have infinitely deep pockets. And we spend 6 to 12 times as much on defense as the Chinese too, that puts a heavy burden of taxes on our talent. It was just a matter of time.

Seems to me 5g is going to usher in a demand for most smartphone owners to upgrade

TA update:

This week..Thurs & Fri...saw the first and largest break corrective move below uptrend support since the Mar low..with a 10% pullback from the prior 399.82 record high. ...reaching a 358.88 low, which coincides with the next lower horizontal support area...and lies below both exponential MAs...with surging volume...

Aforesaid low should now allow for some increasing support to kick in...and avoid any return to the next indicated support area as low as 320ish.
