Apple dumped x86 because Skylake sucked?

At least that's the opinion of one ex-Intel principal engineer:

https://www.pcgamer.com/amp/intel-skylake-why-apple-left/

According to him, Apple filed almost as many bugs against Skylake as Intel found themselves. Obviously that's not the only reason, but it sure wouldn't have helped the case of anyone inside Apple who might have been pushing for the status quo. I guess if you are going to have to be the primary debugger of a new chip design, you might as well be debugging your own chip design...
