Phil Moore says Intel is on the way out as the CPU for Macs.
The MacBook Air will ditch Intel after the Haswell era, the Pro sometime after that, then the iMac until the entirety to Apple’s product line runs on its own chips. Tim Cook has expressed a desire to free Apple from the constraints of having to wait for outside vendors to invent the components it wants to use, and that points to the Apple-Intel chip marriage dissolving just as surely as the Apple-ARM and Apple-Motorola chip partnerships faded before it.
Thinner, lighter, faster, long battery life, lower price? We’ll see. I can’t imagine we’ll see a Mac Pro with an ARM processor that runs as fast as the Intel CPUs. Does Moore’s new law think Intel will stand still over the next 10 years?
