Apple Rumored To Ditch Intel Processors In Macs By 2020 - [hardware]
09:56 AM EDT - Apr,03 2018 - post a comment

If you've been following Apple for the past decade, then you know that the company has become adept at producing its own silicon for iPhones and iPads. Apple's A-Series SoCs are performance juggernauts, often outpacing their Qualcomm Snapdragon 8xx rivals in cross-platform benchmarks versus Android devices. That same chip design prowess, which has paid dividends for Apple's mobile fortunes, might also transfer to its PC products as well, according to a new report. Bloomberg, which often obtains some rather accurate details about Apple's unreleased product lines, says that the company will begin ditching Intel as a supplier of processors for its Macs as soon as 2020. Intel shares were down 6 percent on the news. These ARM processors are part of an initiative reportedly dubbed Kalamata. It is highly likely that the first products to make the transition would be thin and light notebooks like the 12-inch MacBook, and then expands to the rest of the MacBook Pro (and Air) families. Things would definitely get more interesting when it comes to Apple's desktop family, which include the iMac, iMac Pro and the Mac Pro (which is due for a redesign). In the case of the iMac Pro, it's currently available with up to an 18-core Intel Xeon W processor. There is nothing in Apple's current arsenal that can deliver that sort of firepower, but there's no telling what the company's secret chip skunkworks is up to at this point.
