Apple planted a flag last year when it announced a custom chip for Mac computers. The M1 chip marked the beginning of the end of Apple’s relationship with Intel, and Intel was rocked. In turn, Intel attacked Apple. Whether it is hire Justin Long for a series of announcements or conducting social experiments with Apple fans, Intel wants us all to know that Apple hasn’t won yet. But Apple may be preparing to leave Intel in the dust with 3nm chips.
Apple’s first 3nm chips could arrive in 2023
On Fridays, The information reported that Apple is already working on the next two generations of Mac silicon. As we know, the M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max have all been manufactured in a 5-nanometer process. Apple will reportedly use a more advanced 5nm process for the second generation Mac chip that we expect to see in 2022. Some of the advanced 5nm chips could feature two dies, which would double the performance of the Mac computers Apple is running on. install them.
According to The information, Apple could cause a sensation in 2023 with the introduction of its first 3nm chips. Sources say Apple and TSMC are working together to produce 3nm chips for Macs that could hold up to four dies and 40 CPU cores. They also believe that Apple has codenamed its three third-generation processors Ibiza, Lobos and Palma.
Adding fuel to the already raging fire, The information the report says Apple’s third-generation chips “will easily outperform future Intel processors for consumer PCs.” Analysts say The information that the chips that expect Intel to ship in 2023 will not be able to challenge Apple’s processors.
How can Intel compete?
Needless to say, none of this is good news for Intel. For now, the chip maker has kept its head above water with Alder Lake processors. Like MacRumors underlined, the Geekbench 5 results of the Core i9-12900K demolished the M1 Pro and the M1 Max. The Core i9 has an average multi-core score of around 18,500, while the M1 Pro and M1 Max sit around 12,500. Intel’s new chip may consume more power, but it’s still faster than Apple’s flagship computer chip.
Finally, the report also notes that Apple plans to switch to a 3nm process for its iPhone 2023 chip as well. Provided the naming conventions do not change, the iPhone 15 is expected to ship with a 3nm A17 Bionic chip. . Sure, we’ll be careful iPhone 14 leaks In the meantime.
