Apple is reportedly looking to change the chip technology it uses in its computers.
Here’s KWCH...

“Apple is exploring ways to replace the Intel chip in Mac personal computers with the chip in its iPhones and iPads. It believes its own chip technology would work just as well. It may be a few years before any switch is made.”

PhoneArena offers a possible explanation for the potential switch.

“The goal might be to have uniform chip technologies across all Apple products, fine-tuned for its own software, and, with time, we could very well see a convergence among Apple’s desktop, laptop, tablet and phone experience.”

CNET asks if Apple’s chips can out-muscle those of Intel.
The tech site says while Apple is on the right track, it’s still competing with the world’s premier chipmaker and there’s no assurance a future Apple chip would outperform Intel.

Such a switch could hurt Intel but Digital Trends says don’t expect the company to go down without a fight.

“The chipmaker has been furiously trying to break into the smartphone and tablet market... and has made great strides toward designing powerful chips that suck up less power and don’t require loud fans to stay cool.”

Apple began using Intel chips in 2005.
