Intel Chips overpriced?

1). Arm doesn't sell the chips. That's just royalty.

2). Intel sells expensive chips, sometimes x500 price of an ARM.

3). Volume wise many more ARM chips sold in a week than Intel sells all year.

4). Intel mostly sells to Servers, PCs, Laptops. Only Servers are not dwindling sales.

5). ARM chips are used in ANYTHING that needs a CPU. It's easier for ARM to break into Server market than Desktop/Laptop Windows market. MS can't sensibly switch to ARM for desktop Windows. Apple can more easily switch Mac from Intel to ARM, they've switched Mac CPUs several times before and Apple's main HW is now ARM based iThings, not the Mac range.
