Impact of the M1 chip on Windows and PCs


I’ve seen a lot of reviews and benchmarks that show that the M1 chip outperforms even Intel Core i9 and Ryzen 9 chips. Just wondering about what this means long-term for the x86-64 platform and for Windows. There are four possible options, if you were looking to buy a new PC, as I was:

  1. Buy a new PC now
  2. Buy a Mac
  3. Wait till next year to see what Microsoft and its partners have in store (I doubt it’ll be anything exciting) or
  4. Wait for the next iteration of the M1 chip to to come out next year.

In any case, this seems like a BFD.
