Some time ago, Bloomberg fanned the possibility of this exchange starting in 2020 or 2021; yesterday the Axios has come to confirm this prediction and report that Intel itself is already preparing for it.

By the time Series A processors are able to equip Macs and make them as or more powerful than they are today, Ma is sure to turn the key quickly.
Who is excited about the idea?
