Apple decided to start A new era in which it would begin to manufacture its own processors. With this you get great advantages in technological engineering and as a business.
Now he has been an example for Microsoft which also seems to be starting to consider making your own chips.
Apple begins to manufacture its own computer processors
This year, Apple launched its new project which consisted of manufacturing its own processors to be implemented in its computers. With this, the business would stop depend on intel and its rules which, in a way, were involved in many processes of launching and manufacturing Apple computers.
In addition, with the Apple M1 chip The bitten apple company has shown itself in the tech field as a worthy creator, because among the advantages of this processor is the power and high performance it offers to Mac computers, surpassing even the latest Intel Tiger. Lake according to a recent test.
Microsoft in Apple’s footsteps
Given the advantages obtained by Apple with its own processors, Microsoft has set its sights on new horizons which allow it to follow the strategy of its competitor by freeing itself from the dependence of Intel Corp and join to companies seeking technological expansion by entering this field of engineering.
According to Bloomberg and his internal company sources, Microsoft is already developing their own processors to be used internally as data centers, but also a chip designed to be implemented in some of its Surface line devices.
“Microsoft’s efforts are more likely to result in a server chip than its Surface devices, although the latter is possible.
Microsoft’s hiring of engineers specializing in the creation of processors
So this recent news should be something Microsoft has been working on before. since a while. Even Frank Shaw, a spokesperson for the company, said:
“Because silicon is an essential component of technology, we continue to invest in our own capabilities in areas such as design, manufacture and tooling, while fostering and strengthening partnerships with a wide range of suppliers. chips …
While neither Apple nor Microsoft own the majority of the PC market, the reality is that both companies have this new initiative to enter into competition
With the departure of Apple’s M1 processor, a revolt broke out among its competitors which put the company back in the example to follow. Now Microsoft is using Qualcomm’s ARM chips, which are used in many models in its Surface line, so that would be the backbone of its new proprietary processor.
In the end, big tech companies computer vendors, they opt and bet to be the manufacturers of one of the main components of their machines. This impacted Intel as its shares fell 6.3% to close at $ 47.46 in New York City, leaving them to close at 21% for this year.
