Apple from its official website already announced the silicon launch, the latest in world technology. Today, in the United States, will take place the event of the official presentation with the phrase ??One more thing??.
In the official announcement, CEO Tim Cook stated that it will be: ??A historic day for Mac??. Considering what it is about, there is no doubt that this program will completely change the hardware architecture in the entire line of personal computers.
The objective of the Apple Silicon launch is to replace those Intel x86 computers with their own designs, under the RISC architecture licensed by ARM.
What is expected of Apple Silicon?
All that can be known about the new path of Mac with Apple Silicon is that the program has a term of at least 2 years to complete.
Years ago, a similar transition was made from Power PCs to Intel developments. Until now, the company did not announce which models will be marketed, but the presentation of the program will reveal a whole new line of Mac.
The general launch roadmap is already known, and unsurprisingly, the replacement will begin with some computers in the following timeframes:
- For the 13-inch MacBook Pros, 13-inch MacBook Airs and 16-inch MacBook Pros, the announcement is on November 10 and will be available before the end of the year.
- In the case of the iMac and iMac Pro, as well as the Mac mini and Mac Pro, the launch will only be in 2021.
So far not many details of the new Mac with Apple Silicon are known but it is speculated that the computers will be identical in their designs to the current models that have Intel hardware.
In the case of the iMac with ARM, Apple is working on a complete redesign. The same is true for Apple’s Mac mini, desktop PCs, and cheaper Macs.
A motivation for Mac fans
Apple has been thinking about ARM for existing Macs for a long time since the original iPhone was released. The brand always looks for a strategy to prevent Apple users from being dependent on external technology, achieve maximum control in integration and save on costs.
Silicon’s new release is pretty much the equivalent of what Apple commonly does on its mobile devices, but this time it’s for Mac.
It is quite possible that the processor used by the new Mac Apple Silicon is based on the A14 Bionic, a chip that already dazzles fans of the iPhone 12 and iPad Air 4.
If Apple succeeds in making these new processors outperform the expected improvement, it may – as it always does – achieve a big shift in technology trends.
