Apple Working on Trio of New Macs With Custom Co-Processors That Could Launch This Year

Apple on the War Path against Qualcomm and Intel as Far as Microchips are Concerned

Apple has been making some of its iPhones, iPads, Macs and iWatches since quite some time now. The in-house work makes for quality designs and also beats its rivals at their own game.

According to a recent report by Bloomberg, Apple is making upto three new Mac models with T-series security chips and custom co-processors. And Apple is also said to be planning to replace Intel as the supplier of the Mac CPU.

These three Mac models include updated notebooks and a new desktop. And according to Mark Gurman's report, these three new models could come as early as this year.

In recent times, Apple began working in earnest on silicon products. Thus microprocessors are the name of the game for Apple now. The genius Steve Jobs believed that Apple ought to rely on its own forces. This would make it superior to its rivals such as Samsung, Intel and a few other big shots.

The high tech firm took a giant step towards this in 2008. Then in 2010, the iPad was introduced by Steve Jobs. The whole idea of a system on a chip then caught on and spread like wildfire.

The inner workings of Apple’s products sure had a great deal of complexity built into them. They were seamless gadgets which were beautiful by technological standards.

Apple isn’t the first high tech firm to create its own chips at its own premises. Motorola and IBM are two other big firms that do the same thing.

Chipmaking is a very costly process and you need to mobilize a great many factors at one and the same time to achieve even a single microchip.

Apple’s forays into chipmaking means that its rival, Samsung, which is also into chipmaking, will get some serious competition. Intel and Qualcomm are doing the best they can too. Yet Apple wants to outshine all these organizations. Apple employs scads of workers to do its job of chipmaking.

Its recent expansion means that other companies such as Qualcomm and Intel will be facing quite some heat from the behemoth that is Apple. They will have to shape up or ship out.
