It’s been almost a year since Apple announced a new transition in the Mac lineage, and after years of rumors it would finally move from Intel to Apple Silicon. With this change, Apple took control of the chip design who wear and will wear their Macs for years to come. And, in the process, they left Intel out.
Intel really hasn’t completely disappeared from the lineup. For example, it’s still inside the most powerful MacsLike the Mac Pro. However, it is only a matter of time before all models switch to Apple Silicon. Something that unsurprisingly did not work well with Intel.
Since the announcement of the transition, Intel has varied its speech at will. On the one hand, they are abandoning the possibility that the company may contribute in the future to the manufacture of Apple processors. Other, set out to attack Apple products. And the strangest thing is that they attack Macs that still carry their processors.
Recently, the company launched a new campaign focused on comparing Macs with other computers with Intel processors. Concretely, in which playing skills refer to. They show some of the games there that don’t support macOS, an issue that has long plagued the platform. And, on the other hand, they also present a very particular benchmark.
In this test, a Windows PC, embedding an Intel i5 11400H and a GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, is compared to a MacBook Pro with an Intel i9 9980HK processor and a Radeon Pro 5600M. In the case of the Mac, Boot Camp is used for most gameswhile on the PC they work natively. And the results are a clear victory for Intel. But, at the same time, a defeat, since the Macs they present are still computers with their processors.
As shared by PC Gamer, Intel has made it clear that Apple is now a competitor. Therefore, they don’t hesitate to attack them so aggressively. Of course, they haven’t shared anything new, and it’s known to everyone that video games are the big hanging topic of the Mac. a lot on Apple.
