    So they went with what Apple did with their M1 chip, just they are targeting server market?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Not really, ARM makes the IP so people can build SoCs around them. As at the bottom of the article, this is a set of IPs for people to build Neoverse based chips / systems. Apple took the ARM IP and made their own chip with it, just like Qualcomm does with the Snapdragon and how Samsung did with the Exynos. Also, the M1 didn't come out that long ago, ARM couldn't reverse engineer Apple's product and make their own, non-patent violating version, in such a short time.

    Apple is using ARM's tech, not the other way round. Apple have done something very interesting with the M1 and their tight control of their software ecosystem means they have a far bigger chance of making it work than Microsoft's ARM stuff (although they did this a loooong time ago with Windows 2000 Mobile on the Jornada 720, couldn't make it work properly then and can't do it now because the appeal of Windows is the software availability). I'm very interested to see how this stuff works out. But it's not a miracle of Apple's genius. It's an application of ARM's IP and you can see the development path has been over several years in the iPads. They are right to ditch Intel, as everyone else is moving forward without them. Using ARM made a lot of sense.
