It boggles the mind that amongst greater competition from AMD and ARM, Intel decides that what it's business model needs is a subscription fee to unlock CPU features:


@jokeyrhyme I don't understand this. Does it mean that they will sell processors at a loss, and then make up the difference/margin by charging to turn it on to capacity for some, or does it mean we'll be paying a full price for all of it, but will have to pay even more to unlock what we already bought?

@goran haha, the thought of this lowering prices for anyone, haha, good one!

@jokeyrhyme yeah, you're right. This is more of a bmw move.
