Apple Considering Switch From Intel Chips in Future Macs

Apple Considering Switch From Intel Chips in Future Macs
Geeks Union

Anybody remember the uproar back in 2005 when Apple decided to change to Intel Processors from PowerPC Chips? This came as a result of a number of problems with this chip, including power consumption issues. Well it looks like Apple is set to change again, although this time they won’t be going for a pre-existing chip, instead they will be developing one of their own. This comes after last year when rumours were abound that they were planning on switching from Intel to ARM processors in their future laptops.

It seems that everything has been in motion for this switch over for the past few years. Apple started by buying the chip designer P.A. Semi in 2008 for a phononemal $279 million, they then piped up and purchased the ARM Chip specialists Intrinsity I 2010 and most recently they put the Israeli company, Anobit who specialise in flash memory.

So why are they changing? Well it is common belief amongst Apple engineers that the chips in their mobile devices will soon be powerful enough to run their personal computers and laptops. This information is a bit ‘confidential’ at the moment however with the engineers who shared this information refusing to be named.

This isn’t going to be a fast change however. Apple it seems are committed to Intel for at least the next few years. Many people are predicting that this is a change that needs to happen and that it is inevitable. The reason for this is that mobile devices and PCs are now so similar that they can basically use the same hardware.

This isn’t going to be the first time that Apple have developed their own chip however. With their mobile devices like the iPod, iPad and iPhone they have stopped using ‘off the shelf’ chips. Instead they have opted for their own chips based on custom designs. As mentioned previously, the company has been purchasing a lot of companies in order to increase the amount of experience that they have in the design of integrated circuits.

Whatever happens in the future, this is going to be an absolutely massive blow to Intel as they will lose out on a massive contract. They are already flailing as it is considering the Personal Computer market is stagnant for the first time in years and the fact that they aren’t really used in any mobile devices. It really will be interesting to see what the future brings in this market.
