probably it will consume x86 as well until only gaming left. after that the cost to develop gaming too expensive, the developer of games move on to arm then x86 no more

Chances are your average enthusiast PC already had more ARM cores in it than x86 cores in the form of storage and peripheral controllers.

Not that's a useful figure of merit.

Hehe I wonder if this headline is meant to rebuff stats emerging about RISC-V sales?

  • Alibaba's T-Head have sold over 2.5billion APU-level open source RISC-V XuanTie chips
  • Andes Technology, by the end of last year, had sold 8billion and
  • SiFive another couple of billion. (And there are lots of other companies selling RISC-V chips.)
Arm have already had to change their business practice in response to RISC-V MPUs -
"It's said that ARM had canceled license fees for the companies with financing amount lower than $5 million, to compete with its opponent RISC-V on the aspects of pricing," - Geng Bo, deputy secretary-general of the China Solid State Lighting Alliance

There will come a point where the proprietary business model simply won't be able to compete against the open source rivals. And that moment might come sooner than people imagine.

Qualcomm's platform for Windows has yet to become competitive against those from AMD and Intel
Arm-based notebook PC processor vendors will need to step up software investment and branding efforts to compete effectively with x86-based vendors Intel and AMD.
Or maybe price them competitively relative to performance. Pretty much all the Windows on Arm devices cost upwards of £1000, but were easily matched by devices that cost less than half that.

Because they need a much stronger arm cpu to handle the emulation/jit whatever they use to run windows.
They would have to lose a lot of money per unit to price them competitively.
