    • Any rumor needs to be tested against the sanity test and this one is highly suspect.

      First, nothing was mentioned what features in server CPUs Google believes it needs that Intel isn't already making or that's on Intel's roadmap. If there's no unmet need why do it?

      And if Google wanted some custom x86 features for its servers all they'd have to do is ask. Intel has enough resources to custom build x86 products for top tier customers.

      Further, the suggestion is that because Apple makes its own SoCs for mobile the case for Google doing the same for servers makes sense. However Apple sells smartphones and tablets in the hundreds of millions per year to justify the effort and even then Apple doesn't do it for the laptops and desktops for a number of reasons that include performance and legacy software considerations. No doubt Google uses a lot of servers but there are orders-of-magnitude difference between the volume Apple deals with versus the number of servers Google requires.

      One very thin rumor repeated a hundred times doesn't make it any more credible.

    • Company's with mega billions like Apple and Google can do whatever they want. Wouldn't be surprised to see MSFT dabble in the chip business also.

    • Intel is on the way to $30+ in the next 12-18 months! Shorts will get burned!
