Ah, I loved the zilog architecture z80 to z80000 which was very similar to the ibm mainframe architecture and instruction set. Never figured out why they went intel. There was so much to be gained from zilog. RIP Zilog....

There's also Qualcomm. They make mobile processors, but that's becoming evermore relevant in this day and age. Mobile devices are now powering a ton of gaming and workspace hours. There may be a day soon where Qualcomm becomes that 3rd pressure in the market.

As someone who worked for an Intel competitor in the early 1980's I can say from experience that it takes more than a spiffy chip to succeed in the general purpose MPU market. The support that potential customers looked for was staggering -- availability of engineering samples, development systems, a selection of operating systems and application software manufacturer's technical support and so on. But THE most important criteria in selection of an MPU chip was did the customer believe the manufacturer could deliver working chips in the needed quantities at the target price when they went to production. This was the driving motivation of IBM in selecting the 8088. IBM engineers were not thrilled with the 8088 for several reasons but IBM decision makers believed Intel could produce the 8088 in the required numbers as promised and offered an upgrade path to the 8086 which was introduced in 1982 with the AT. Once IBM, at that time the most respected name in computers, blessed the Intel offering and a huge third party effort to produce software and hardware add-ons emerged it was pretty much game over for competitors as no other general purpose market was nearly as big as P.Cs. Some companies did well in the workstation market but the volume was much lower and hence even those were doomed. Even the Motorola 68k family, which was clearly architecturally superior to the x86, fizzled out by the 1990s and was discontinued. Some of the competitors morphed their offerings into special purpose mpus for high-volume but low glamour roles like copiers and faxes but the large volume P.C. market was owned by Intel.

AMD was actually Intel owned, but when you have reached to top and there is no other competition, you break the company into two in order to create competition and innovation. Why else is it, that every AMD innovation, finds a place on an Intel chip? Come on guys you can't really be that stupid?

Why are there only 2 CPU companies? The fk? There are more than 2 AMD Intel Apple Qualcomm ARM Raspberry Pi CPU Runs on Arm Architecture which is technically running on a 1.6 Ghz CPU which is not intel or amd. There are also some russian CPU makers and chineese CPU makers. You don't hear about them because these CPUs are designed for IOT products, are much more efficient at doing 1 task.

Why don't NVidia and AMD just take the insane money they are making from these miners buying everything, and speed up the development of their own microchip foundries? Get 5nm plants built THIS YEAR! The ONLY thing stopping them producing more graphics cards and CPUs than even all the miners could buy, is the speed that they can get their hands on the chips to make their stuff. If they poured in a few million into faster foundry production, not only would they be able to take FULL advantage of the demand NOW, making more money than they could dream of (which should be a good enough incentive for them to do it), they would also make us happy, and spank the scalpers by flooding the market with so many devices that the scalpers are left with stock they cant sell, and a lesson learned about being greedy! The games industry would also be grateful to stop the devolution in hardware that people are currently having to settle for, which stops them making better games! Its a win for everyone except the flaming scalpers! Use you influence and lean on AMD and NVidia - it just makes sense NOW!

It's an "accepted" idea that it takes maybe 3 or 4 years to plan, develop, design, & construct a foundry. But the foundry talked about in this link, for AMD & NVidia, has already finished all but one of those steps - they are in the construction stage, which has already started! According to this article it will be ready by 2024, so why could't they just bring in more people and make it faster? www.pcgamer.com/uk/tsmc-in-the-desert-with-the-silicon-wafer/

The cruel reality is that microelectronics was invented in Italy and USA at the same time; and was developed and produced only in the USA in a first phase. Since it was a great revolution, it was used since the beginning as a weapon to simply strike the global market and prevail in the international scenery. Prevail economically doesn't differ much from prevailing militarily. Therefore, it was basically used as a terrific weapon. In fact, most electronic standards and Internet itself are from the USA (ex.: ASCII --> American Standard Code for Information Interchange). This also explains the actual tensions within the relationships between the USA and China (Huawei is a good competitor).

It's not true that are only "two" companies which makes CPU. In fact there are several other companies that does that for instance ARM, Nvidia, Qualcomm etc. Sure these are dedicated processors to be used in equipments other than computers mother boards but these still can be used as CPUs. There are even gaming PCs projects based on ARM processors.

IMO you understate the significance of the M1 Processor. It’s the new kid on the block sure, but it seems to have the likely potential to sink x86 processors. It is already posting impressive x86 emulation scores. We can only expect it to improve. While having such power and heat benefits it’s possiable that x86 has started its end of life.

Fun fact, Cyrix made faster FPU than Intel at the 387 and 487 time. When they release their pentium compatible CPU (the 6x86) they integrated the same FPU than before, except Intel reviewed its architecture in the same time
