  Can Intel's 10th-gen desktop CPUs compete? With AMD now a viable alternative to Intel chips from laptops all the way through workstations and servers, Intel is trying to make its chips more attractive to buyers. The hope had always been that its advanced 10nm manufacturing process would bring big improvements in speed and power usage, but as that technology has been continually delayed, Intel has had to look for others ways to offer more value, and what we’ve seen is chips with more and more cores. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Rumor Has It That a MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Will Be the First Apple Silicon Computers .
Even before Apple officially announced its plans to transition the Mac family over to Apple Silicon at WWDC last month, people predicted that Macs with Apple-made ARM processors were coming this year. Back in March, noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo speculated that the first Apple ARM processors could hit the market in 2020, later revising his prediction to 2021 due to possible covid-19-related production delays.
