Intel plans to continue improving the performance of its processors and find a way to compete with Apple Silicon, but it looks like the company wants to do so in a respectful tone. How? ‘Or’ What? Try to ensure that your intentions to work with TSMC does not mean compromising Apple’s production schedule
Let’s all go
DigiTimes reports that Intel wants strengthen ties with TSMC to manufacture chips using its 3nm technology, the same one that will increase the efficiency of future M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max that Apple could present in 2023 (or later if the crisis of components and logistics obliges it). But of course at TSMC they don’t have all the capabilities to produce Apple and Intel chips at the same time.
That’s why several senior Intel executives will be heading to China to meet with TSMC and see what capacity they can expect without affecting production that Apple has already booked for a long time. No auctions and counter-offers to wrest this production capacity, otherwise try to find that everything fits
3nm technology is expected to be present in Intel’s Meteor Lake chips, and to do so sooner it will need TSMC’s help. For now, Apple continues to have a huge advantage: by 2023, it will already be an ARM chip veteran while the competition is still starting to begin.
