Yup - remember way back in the good old days of Motorola 68xxx vs - Intel;
68xxx was far far superior, but Moto dropped the ball and Intel leapfrogged away.

Heh heh - "68xxx - supercomputer"

The "complex and ugly architecture" is likely more important than Intel's flailing around in chip geometry. I think Apple is tired of trying to get x86 chips to do what it needs. They really want to merge iOS, iPadOS and macOS, and find they can't do it with x86. Intel's geometry problem just helped them to start the conversion earlier.
