Apple may release MacBook with A series processors in 2021

1 min read

In the past few years, Apple has switched a lot of purchased technology products to its own self-developed technology products, so there are many people who believe that Apple will release a MacBook equipped with an ARM processor someday. Today Bloomberg reports that Apple may actually launch a MacBook equipped with an ARM processor.

The report mentions that Apple expects to launch the self-developed A-series processors for the MacBook product line as soon as next year. It is obvious that the first A-series processors used for the MacBook product line will definitely not be strong as the Intel processor, such as performance, compatibility, and so on.

The first batch of processors will consist of eight large cores and four small cores. According to relevant sources, Apple is still developing A-series processors with more than 12 cores.

Bloomberg further pointed out that this batch of A-series processors will include both CPU and GPU, which can allow Apple to reduce its dependence on Intel products and make its own products.

Not only that, Apple is still researching its own 5G modem, which will eventually make Apple move to a completely autonomous position in the technical field, but on the iPhone 12 series, Qualcomm ’s 5G modem will still be equipped.
