Apple is expected to "get rid" of Intel processors by 2020 or 2021. The company wants to start developing Macs with its own chip.
According to popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple should "get rid" of Intel processors by 2020 or 2021. The company wants to start developing Macs with its own chip, as it does not want to stay stuck to the technology launches.
Kuo believes that the move will start in the notebook sector, as it will be difficult to match the best Intel chips in terms of processing. Once that goal is achieved, the transition should also catch the most powerful Macs.
The analyst, who is known to advance information about Apple, also said that the apple company should entrust the manufacturing exercise to the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
For the future, Kuo anticipates that the Taiwanese company will be even more essential to the Cupertino giant's business, since the introduction of the automotive business should commission it to produce the chips that will be used in the autonomous systems.
This forecast is in line with news published by Bloomberg in April this year.
