The apple silicon architecture is really interesting, but its wasted on the company managing and producing the products built on it.

The biggest issue facing all silicon right now is CUDA. If you can't do ML acceleration, in a meaningful way that connects with existing architectures, its a nonstarter. I'm not sure what the solution is, but it isn't metal. We need a FOSS drop in replacement for CUDA similar to x86

I look forward to a future where there is more ARM and RISC-V processors. Its probably gonna take sometime however

I've just lugged an Ampere AVA to a conference for a demo. It's a nice beefy machine and I think will finally be able to be a daily driver once I get it back home.

The real news here seems to be that Linus is going all in on ARM and now has an ARM based desktop workstation as well. He’s still using the MacBook.
