Pat Gelsinger said that Intel is necessary to create a better chip than Apple

At the second new product launch event this fall, Apple brought a new generation of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros for professional users, equipped with M1 Pro or M1 Max chips which means that Apple’s plan to switch to self-developed chips has taken another step forward. Compared with the previous M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max chips have a considerable improvement in performance. Even if there are psychological expectations, many people are surprised.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger was asked about Apple and its self-developed chips during an interview with Marketwatch. When asked if he has given up the idea of ​​running Apple products on Intel hardware, Pat Gelsinger denied that he would never give up any idea not to run on Intel chips. He also pointed out that when Apple decides to make better chips than Intel, what Intel has to do is to create better chips than Apple.
The cooperation between Intel and Apple began in 2006, and it has been 15 years since then. In June 2020, Apple announced the transition to the self-developed Arm processor, which seems to be very successful so far. For Intel, the eventual end of the long-term partnership with Apple still seems to be a huge blow.

In the interview, Pat Gelsinger also said that over time, Intel still hopes to win back this part of the business. At the same time, Intel must ensure that Intel’s products are better than Apple’s and that its ecosystem is more open and vibrant than Apple’s, creating more convincing reasons for developers and users to use Intel-based products. Intel will continue to work hard to win business in this area.
