    People, has Qualcomm dropped out of ARM server business?

      Oh please, that’s a completely [b<][i<]un[/i<][/b<]confirmed rumor. Clearly Qualcomm's server chips will soon dominate the market. I know because Anand Chandrasekher left Qualcomm: [url<][/url<] You know who left AMD two years before RyZen launched and permanently destroyed Intel? That's right, it was Jim Keller. So Anand leaving Qualcomm means Intel's server market share will implode two years from now. QED.

        That’s strange, a lot of hallide salts were used to make them…
