1 min read

In the past few years, although Intel has firmly occupied the top spot in the processor market, AMD has never given up to compete with it. In 2019, AMD gradually gains a foothold in the consumer market through good performance and price advantages, while catching up with Intel in the market for high-end processors suitable for workstations and games.

At this year’s CES show, AMD released a new Ryzen processor suitable for notebook computers, which is considered by many media to suggest that AMD will face head-to-head with Intel in the notebook processor field this year. At present, most computer manufacturers including Microsoft have launched computers equipped with AMD processors. Apple may also be planning to launch AMD-based MacBooks.

A netizen found reference lines to AMD processors in the code file of MacOS 10.15.4 Beta1, such as Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, etc.

From this point of view, Apple may also realize the price advantage of AMD processors. After all, as a commercial company, it is the most important thing to be able to obtain more benefits by reducing costs. Many people who have always sneered at notebook computers equipped with AMD processors have also changed their minds.
