Intel doesn't give a shit about ARM. They don't compete.
This is all about AMD.
Intel can afford to pretend they're doing something with RISC-V. They might even contribute some stuff to RISC-V. Eventually.
This will force AMD to start doing something with RISC-V as well. Because AMD is Intel's perennial copycat, and they can't afford to be seen as left behind. Or not playing with the cool kids.
Problem is: AMD doesn't have Intel's money, or resources.
