Apple has been working on its own chips for years, according to new foreign media reports.To replace Intel chips used in Macs. Apple is likely to announce plans at the world wide Developers Conference 2020 (WWDC) as soon as Monday, and the Mac with its own chips will go on sale next year.
TSMC, Apple's partner for designing similar parts for iPhones and iPads, is expected to produce MAC chips at its factories in Asia, a arrangement very similar to Apple's use of Foxconn to assemble iPhones.
Since 2005, macs have effectively used the same Intel chips as most personal computers. Developing its own processor will give Apple more control over how the MAC works.
Apple has been designing chips for the iPhone and iPad, and has added custom design capabilities authorized by arm. Arm is a semiconductor company owned by Softbank group of Japan, and Apple's upcoming MAC chip is expected to rely on ARM technology to improve its compatibility with its mobile devices.
Previous sources have revealed that Apple has tested its own MAC products based on its own arm processor, and compared with the Intel chip version, Apple has made great improvements in graphics performance and artificial intelligence. In addition, Apple's arm processor is also more energy efficient than Intel's, which means that the future MacBook can be lighter.
In fact, earlier news pointed out that,The apple ARM processor for MacBook products will be designed with 12 cores, including eight high-performance cores and four energy-efficient cores, based on tsmc's five nm process. On the other hand, Qualcomm's latest Cellon 8 cx processor uses an 8-core design, four large and four small cores, one of the most advanced ARM processors currently used in Windows laptops.
