Is Apple Breaking Up With Intel?

When Apple started developing their own chips for iPads and iPhones, there are few people who thought that Apple could get away from Intel chips entirely. That could be changing, however, as Apple continues to move towards complete independence.

Apple began using Intel chips back in 2005. This was a major shift in the company that shocked many people, but helped them take control of the computer market in a large way that they hadn’t in recent years. Once they began producing A7 chips, however, they started focusing on creating faster and more efficient chips for their iDevices.

Steve Jobs himself said in the past that he looked forward to when Apple would have total control of their hardware production. They have been doing this in a lot of ways in recent years, in part by purchasing companies that could handle the production on their own terms.

Apple is currently paying almost $400 for each Intel chip that is used in their high-end Macbook Pro line. By producing their own ARM chips for them, Apple could be saving a great deal of money and make their computers much more affordable.

The introduction of the A7 chip last year was a big step forward for Apple. As they continue to work on these chips, there is no reason to think that they won’t be able to scale them up to work in the rMac line within the next year or two.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
