      Edit: Intel has been doing stuff like this for quite some time, from their presentation at Blackhat 2019:

        Pluton will be interesting. It is really about time that the new RISC-V CPU's and boards come out and be affordable.
        Time to change architecture after all.

        The way I see it, they will do a new "UEFI" and Intel ME type stuff that will be even harder to get rid of in the future.
        Once they have that in, they will probably add a backdoor chip for the secret services of everywhere to connect. Of course, that will be all in the name of counter-terrorism and preventing child pornography and stuff.

          I am not against embedding a TPM chip in CPUs, most industrial SOC have something pretty similar. But automatic updates from the cloud (full stack implies this not done from the OS) ???
          Brick PCs from a certain country at will, slow down PCs, affect their realtime performance, heck no, I don't want any company to have that power, much less one that certainly has to bow down to the NSA.

              Wikipedia continues:
              > ""Embrace, extend, and extinguish" (EEE),[1] also known as "embrace, extend, and exterminate",[2] is a phrase that the U.S. Department of Justice found[3] that was used internally by Microsoft[4] to describe its strategy for entering product categories involving widely used standards, extending those standards with proprietary capabilities, and then using those differences in order to strongly disadvantage its competitors."
              So this is the reason why Microsoft is so FRIENDLY to open source work, including Android, Linux, etc?
              Microsoft was very careful to not allow Apple to legally disappear, early in Apple's life. USA federal systems are supposedly hostile to dictatorships, business or otherwise.
