Apple has been using Intel chips in their lineup since 2006, and things have been all fine and dandy.Â But according to AppleInsider, Apple is having high-level discussions with the AMD corporation to adopt other processor technology.
Intel chips are currently outperforming AMD at a noticeable margin. But why is Apple wanting to switch? A while back, Apple was upset with Intel over chip shortages that forced MacBook Pros into a later than anticipated Core i5/i7 refresh. Plus, Apple is now settling for Intel integrated graphics in MacBook Pros following Intel’s disputes with NVIDIA. AMD, has been eager for the business and could treat Apple as a grade-A client while simultaneously providing them with a cheaper product as well as superior ATI-based GPU solutions.
But again, this is only vauge information and the there is no reason at this point.
