Some leaks from Intel’s roadmap have suggested that the company was working on a new range of CPUs which aim to surpass the performance of Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. These products could be launched on the market by the end of 2023O the beginning of 2024. That is at least two years after Apple’s chips were released.
Intel: The new chips will compete with Apple’s M1 Pro and Max
Intel’s roadmap explicitly states that the company is intent on competing with Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pro with its serie Arrow Lake. According to rumors, the 15th generation chips will be available by late 2023 / early 2024. The priority of the processors will be to provide high performance with minimal power consumption.
“With Arrow Lake, it appears Intel is prioritizing mobile devices over desktops, and while there will be both Arrow Lake-S and Arrow Lake-P CPUs, the company aims to specifically manufacture its 15th-generation mobility CPUs. first to tackle the next generation of Apple Laptop MacBook 14 ″. Based on the leaked roadmap, it looks like we will see the first engineering samples ready by late 2022 and early 2023 with QS chips coming out in Q3 2023 and final production starting in the same quarter. Finally, the CPUs will be ready for RTS (Ready To Ship) in the fourth quarter of 2023. This means that we are looking at a late 2023 or early 2024 launch for the next generation Arrow Lake range of mobility CPUs. “.
The company will reportedly use the 3 nm process of TSMC. A detail that should not be underestimated, given that Apple currently uses the 5nm process for its chips, and is expected to adopt the 3nm chip architecture in 2023 with the release of the Apple “M3” and the A17 chip in the iPhone. 15. In short, the company’s goal is clear: to exceed the performance of Apple chips. Although perhaps, on paper, it already does.
