Re: "vowed to do what it can to make the open-source RISC-V ISA worthy"
It's not like Intel has a choice in that. The best they can do is try to have a cut of it.
Someone -- possibly several someones -- will have RISC-V competitive with x86 and Apple M in 3-5 years. Quite likely including Rivos who Apple are suing for taking too many of their M1 engineers with too much knowledge about how it works. Interestingly Apple isn't trying to stop them -- they're not asking for an injunction or damages, but for royalties.
