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:
- Buy a new PC now
- Buy a Mac
- Wait till next year to see what Microsoft and its partners have in store (I doubt it’ll be anything exciting) or
- Wait for the next iteration of the M1 chip to to come out next year.
In any case, this seems like a BFD.
