According to a new Bloomberg source, Apple wants to use its own processors on Mac computers and will start implementing this strategy from 2020. The company is making plans to rupture Intel
Apple reportedly plans to terminate the relationship with Intel. Resources close to the company told Bloomberg that the Cupertino-based technology giant could start using its chips in Macs starting in 2020.
The project, codenamed Kalamata, has previously been approved by Apple executives. It is likely that the company will first go through a multi-step change process, migrating a single model to a new processor. So the new strategy will be painlessly implemented for both Apple and Intel.
Macs will no longer use Intel processors
Switching to your own processors will undoubtedly bring some advantages for Apple. The company is already using specially designed chips for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Apple Watch. Only Macs are dependent on another company. In this regard, Apple will have the ability to produce products based on its own schedule rather than complying with Intel’s processor roadmap.
This transition will also give Apple the ability to become the only major PC maker to use its own processors. In addition, the Cupertino-based company can provide Macs with better performance and longer battery life by building a stronger integration between hardware and software. Apple has already been taking advantage of it for years on the mobile arena.
