Many of the discussions of Apple moving from x86 to ARM seem to be focused on how they’ll manage that migration.

We break down the last 15 years of Intel’s x86 history, which saw a once-unstoppable march of technical progress grind to a halt, and signaling to a lot of industry observers that Moore’s Law had indeed ended. Aside from losing Apple as a major customer, where does Intel go from here? And will Intel look to the heady performance advantage it had in the past, or look to make a more well-rounded play for the future?
