Apple’s squad-wide goal against the all-powerful Intel could have dire consequences for the North American chipmaker. The success of the new era of Macs Apple Silicon, with its own custom-built Apple M1 ARM processor, has stunned the computer industry.
And above all to Intel, because apart from losing a good customer, he is seeing that he will not be able, at least for the moment, to counteract the ARM processor M1 with an Intel processor that can match it in terms of performance and technology. It has landed a torpedo right on the waterline.
Intel may see its market share of processor sales drop to a new all-time low next year, thanks in large part to Apple’s decision to move away from using Intel processors in its Mac computers and instead build its own ARM processor to measure.
And it is freed because the rest of computer manufacturers based on Windows they have no choice but to continue mounting Intel or AMD. If they could go to ARM architecture like Apple has done, then yes it would be “touched to death.”
Apple Silicon, a success
Once again, Apple has taken a risk with its new transfer to use its own processors in its Macs, and it has been a success. First because the hardware It is at the height. A new ARM processor exclusive to Apple with spectacular technological advances, which make its performance and power management brutal.
And second because the software it is also at the hardware level. A hybrid macOS that works for both Intel and the M1, and a legion of independent developers with the most important at the helm who have raced to launch their native applications for the M1. The perfect Storm.
With this panorama, DigiTimes ventures that Intel this year will lose 50% of its orders from Apple, and later it will reach 100%. This will cause Intel’s market share to fall below the 80% in 2023, according to said report.
