Ampere switching to custom core

As by this Andtech article, Ampere is switching to custom cores.

ARM core roadmap seems solid, so I doubt it is a pure technical decision. Rather, it seems to me that they are pressed by the hyperscalers going their own route - ie: Amazon using in-house Graviton CPU.

In other words, the added value they can bring to the table seems to necessarily be a custom, different CPU core. So, even with a more broad and diverse ARM ecosystem (compared to the only two x86 suppliers, three if you count VIA), the hyperscalers seems to change the rules of the game.

What do you think?
