This is not a small thing:
Today, Apple has unveiled their brand-new MacBook line-up. This isn’t an ordinary release – if anything, the move that Apple is making today is something that hasn’t happened in 15 years: The start of a CPU architecture transition across their whole consumer Mac line-up.via anandtech
The beginning of
Apple Silicon is the end of
Intel Silicon — there’s a real inverse and powerful relationship here and Apple launching their first custom-designed
SoCs (System-on-a-Chip) Mac means the start of a new era of computing.
There aren’t any obvious physical changes as all the meta-level changes are happening on the inside — I’m not sure that Intel will recover. Apple out-executing Intel, Qualcomm, AMD, and others in the semiconductor space is a clear and honest reminder that
execution is everything.
Here we go.
