Now with ARM being part of NVIDIA, we should definitely see some Gaming based chipset based on a capable ARM CPU and Nvidia Graphics.

The ARM Nvidia deal could fall threw ARM china is not cooperating currently.

My opinion on this has not changed and that it will be at least 5-7 years before things are totally locked out. They have said that the transition will be 2 years. once should apple with typically support OS releases for 5 years after that. I think at that point it will be a AppleSilicon only world by then.

So the community upcoming need will now be to force MS Windows into Mac hardware.
That makes sense.

???Why bother??
Why pay Apple premium for Mac hardware to run Windows on when you can build your own PC with off-the-shelf parts you select yourself to run Windows on? Windows contains drivers for >98% of PC parts.

Oh, and BTW, Windows will already run on Mac hardware with bootcamp drivers from Apple, so forcing is not necessary.
