Apple will announce during the World Developer Conference that it will transition from Intel processors to its ARM chips on Mac.
The Apple will announce at the World Developers Conference (Worldwide Developer Conference), which will take place June 22, you want to start using ARM chips instead of processors Intel Macs. The information came through the Bloomberg website , where it is said that the “apple” intends to use its own personalized 5nm lithography A series chips by next year, 2021.
In order to ensure that developers have enough time to make changes to their applications to work on the new architecture, Apple plans to announce its processor transition plan. At the same time, the company will provide development tools for everyone to prepare properly in advance. The manufacturer responsible for the 5nm A series chips for Macs will be TSMC.
The name of Apple’s ARM chips is Kalamata
The name of the ARM chips on Macs is Kalamata and has been in development since 2018. According to the information, Apple is working on at least 3 models of ARM processors for its devices. According to the wccftech website :
“The first of these processors will be a 5nm and 12-core chip, with eight high-performance cores called Firestorm and four energy-efficient cores, called Icestorm. Apple will use a similar architecture used for iPhone and iPad, which also uses a mix of high-performance, energy-efficient cores. Gradually, Apple will double or quadruple the number of cores in its A-series processors, compared to Intel’s current offerings on Macs. “
The first Mac to use the new ARM processor is believed to be the 12-inch Macbook. Apple says that with Kalamata, their computers will have better graphics and CPU performance, in addition to gaining support for deep learning, due to the use of the Neural Egine chip, and greater energy efficiency.
According to the information said, Apple intends to start implementing ARM processors in Macbooks. However, in the future, the company plans to use them on the iMac Pro as well, which currently uses Intel Xeon processors.
It is not the first time that Apple has made an architectural transition
It is not the first time that Apple has made a processor architecture transition. In 1990, the “apple” migrated from Motorola to PowerPC chips and later migrated to Intel in 2007. However, this time, the company will replace with processors developed by its own engineers.
What else will be announced besides the change of processors?
In addition to the processor architecture transition, Apple will announce iOS 14, watchOS 7, tvOS 14, and macOS 10.16 at its conference.
