Apple Got Us Excited About Laptop Chips Again 2022

Apple’s Macs haven’t looked back since, gaining fans even as Apple’s share of all computer shipments fell below 1%. Now, Apple has done it again — this time for real. For the first time ever Sunday night during the company’s annual developer conference in San Jose, Calif., CEO Tim Cook announced that Macs will come with their own processors, which Apple has designed in-house.

New Processors

The new processors, called the A12X Bionic, are powerful enough to give even the most expensive MacBook Pro a run for its money. The A12X is an octa-core chip with 12 cores. That’s more than the six cores in Intel’s top-of-the-line Core i9 processor.

Cook didn’t announce any specific models that would include the new processor, but said they would be coming “later this year.” Given that Apple’s current top-of-the-line laptops use Intel processors, it’s likely that the first models to get the new A12X will be the replacements for the MacBook Pro and the iMac.

Could Be A Problem For Intel ?

That could be a problem for Intel, which is already struggling to maintain its dominant market position. In April, the company’s CEO, Brian Krzanich, resigned after it was revealed that he had had a sexual relationship with an employee of a company that does business with Intel.

Krzanich’s departure leaves Intel looking for a new leader at a time when it needs to come up with new strategies to stay ahead of Apple and other competitors in the race to make the processors that power our devices.

It’s not clear yet how this will play out, but one thing is for sure: Apple’s move to put its own in Macs is going to make things a lot more interesting.

It’s been a decade since Apple first got us excited about laptop chips again. That’s when Apple introduced its first laptop with an Apple-designed chip instead of the standard Intel processor that other makers used at the time. The new chip gave laptops made by Apple more graphical power to play games, edit videos and do everything else graphics-intensive modern computers are expected to do.
