The company collaborated 15 years.
Apple will no longer use Intel Corp. In their Mac products is what will move to chips of its own design, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
Thus Apple will break a 15-year collaboration with Intel.
CEO Tim cook said that the first Mac computers equipped with processors Apple will be released before the end of this year.
“When we make radical changes, we do it for one simple but important reason: in order to produce much better products. Mac goes on its own chips — Apple Silicon,” said cook at the annual conference for developers WWDC in San Jose.
Apple believes that the new processors will improve the performance of computers with less energy consumption. The company expects to complete the transition within two years.
Microsoft and Adobe have already begun to adapt their packages, Office applications and Photoshop under Apple chips.
The intention to abandon Intel said two years ago. As reported by Bloomberg, switching to their own chips is part of an overall strategy aimed at improving interaction between Apple devices, including computers, iPhones and iPads.
In this case, Apple will have the opportunity to release new Mac models in accordance with their plans and targets, not adapting to the new processors from Intel. In addition, the company will become the only major PC manufacturer, equipping their equipment with their own chips. HP, Lenovo, Dell and Asus are purchasing processors from Intel, the undisputed leader in this market.
It is noted that Intel will not tolerate a strong financial blow from the loss of cooperation by Apple. According to analysts Sanford C. Bernstein, the share of the entire line of the Mac accounts for less than 5% of the annual revenues of Intel.
