This suit made little sense on the surface because ARM is not a player on servers, so you’d think it would support any of its licensees going into that market. But another aspect of this is that the joint development of a PC part by these two companies would, at least on paper, create a better solution than Apple’s M1 processor, also operating under an ARM license, which may have caused Apple to force ARM to block Qualcomm from creating a Windows ARM part that would outperform Apple’s MacOS alternative.
