Apple really, really moving to Intel chips?

A lot of talk about Apple moving from PowerPC to Intel, I really can care less of what processor Macs use as long as it runs OS X. As John Shen once said in 18-747 (formerly entitled Superscalar Processor Design), RISC and CISC really don’t matter right now; they really aren’t much different in the micro-architectural level.

However, I’d much prefer if Apple adopts AMD instead of Intel. Probably coz I spent 3 years of my life at Newisys to work on a cache coherency (HyperTransport) router ASIC for the Opeteron. 🙂
