Apple has finally decided to abandon Intel after a series of years of rumors and leaks! A decision that still shocked not only several experts, but also many of the fans of the Mac world. However, these leaks and rumors even had a reason to be… It’s just that Apple already wants to leave Intel behind since 2016, all due to the drop in the quality of its products.
It’s not the first time we’ve heard of Apple not finding Intel’s production problems, or a lack of evolution in recent years, especially in the field of performance/efficiency, a lot of fun.
However, it seems that the reason is much simpler than this.
Apple abandoned Intel due to poor product quality
Therefore, according to PC Gamer, which will seek some information to statements from the former leader of intel’s engineering team (François Piednoël), Apple’s problems with Intel began early in the reign of the 14nm process, that is, when the ‘Skylake’ architecture hit the market. Now read:
“The quality control of skylake architecture was more than a problem. It was really abnormally bad. We were constantly having problems with technology-based products. And of course, Apple was one of the customers who complained the most. Things went really badly. When one of the top customers starts encountering more problems than we do, the path ahead of us is surely not going to get any easier.”
In short, it was here that Apple’s leadership decided to start experimenting with something different, to get away from the x86 architecture and Intel products. Apple engineers met and came to the conclusion that “well… We’re probably going to have to do this.”
Therefore, the change would always happen due to what happened in 2015/2016. However, it’s safe to say that the lot of vulnerabilities discovered in 2019 also didn’t help the party and certainly increased the pace of development in Apple’s labs.
