Initial reviews of Apple Silicon chip are new MacBook Air M1, MacBook Pro M1 And Mac Mini Flashing, and it seems that Apple is not the only company to embrace ARM-based chips. According to Bloombergs Sources say Microsoft is currently exploring the possibility of producing its own chips, which could leave Intel cold.
The report emphasizes that the core hub of any new chips will be for servers running the Microsoft Azure cloud operating system, one of the site’s sources, which said it was “possible” that it would lead to a first-party ARM chip for surface products. It was previously referred to as “another chip”, so it doesn’t seem to be a one-size-fits-all processor.
As you might expect Microsoft did not confirm the existence of the program when approached with the concept. “As Silicon is a foundation for technology, we continue to invest in our own capabilities in areas such as design, manufacturing and tools, while at the same time developing and strengthening partnerships with a wide range of chip providers,” said Frank Shaw of Microsoft.
Despite the approval for third-party partnerships there, this is undeniably bad news for Intel, which currently offers most processors for Azure cloud services, as well as chips for most surface ranges (introduced by Microsoft) Raison running surface laptop3 Last year.) Intel’s share fell 6.3%, thanks to a slight leak.
The ARM-powered surface is one of two ways. On the one hand, the new Apple M1 MacBooks were a revelation, offering more impressive power and stronger battery life than older Intel models. And definitions suggest it Windows 10 works best on Apple’s hardware Even, though Due to licensing issues There is currently no way consumers can easily see themselves.
That’s Apple Surface Pro X Powered by ARM chip with SQ2 co-developed by Microsoft and Qualcomm, but its performance and battery life are behind the latest laptops with Apple Silicon. So it may be time for Microsoft to take matters into its own hands.
