There has been a lot of focus recently on competitors to Intel's dominance in powering Windows 10 PCs. In one corner, you have the traditional competition from AMD, a company which has recently enjoyed a resurgence with its Ryzen and Threadripper processors.
And all this has prompted a bit of a discussion down in the Windows Central forums.
Intel failed to gain any traction in mobile and the Atom processors for lower cost and smaller Windows 10 laptops and tablets have never set the world on fire. In the mobility stakes, with the introduction of always-connected PCs with incredible battery life and LTE connectivity, so far it looks like Qualcomm will be leading the way.
But to say Intel's relevance in the space is declining is perhaps a little early. The company definitely needs to react to Qualcomm and indeed AMD. When it comes to higher-end and gaming Laptops, Intel has the market on lockdown, but the latest generation of Ryzen processors (opens in new tab) from AMD has shown real fight in the desktop space with excellent multi-core performance.
But what do you think about all this and what do you think Intel's next move should be? Hit the forums thread below and join the conversation.
