More than a decade has passed since Apple Inc. began assaulting Microsoft Corp.’s software empire with its Macintosh computers, delivering the first knock-out punch with the 1984 debut of the Macintosh computer and its graphical operating system, which is widely credited with laying the foundation for modern personal computing.
Apple just announced at their developer's conference that they have been working on designing and building chips for their computers.
These chips will power the MacBook pros that are slated to be released in the fall of 2016. Apple's move here is going to put extra pressure on Microsoft’s windows business and apple has not even started selling computers yet.
If apples newest home-grown chips are as good as they say, then it shows that Apple is willing to compete with their biggest business rival Microsoft.
Microsoft has controlled the desktop/laptop computer market for years now and no one has been able to challenge its dominance as of yet.
What Makes Apple More perfect?
- Apple is challenging Microsoft in the PC market with its new Mac Pro and iMac Pro.
- The new iMac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer yet, with an 8-core Xeon processor and up to 128GB of RAM. It also comes with a new graphics card called Radeon Pro Vega II. The Mac Pro, meanwhile, is a modular desktop that can be configured to pack 128GB of RAM and two different Intel Xeon processors: 10-core or 14-core.
- Both computers come with Apple’s own home-grown chips instead of third-party processors like Intel’s Core or AMD’s Ryzen lines — something Apple has been doing since it introduced the first Mac in 1984. Both computers also feature Thunderbolt 3 ports for connecting external storage and other peripherals at high speeds, as well as USB-C ports for charging phones and tablets (but not connecting them).
Which Is the best, when it comes to developing chips?
Apple is better at developing chips. Apple is a very big company and it’s been around for a long time.
They have more resources to work with, they have more money to spend, they have more people working for them, and they have a lot of experience in the field of technology.
Microsoft just started working on these kinds of things recently, so they don’t have all the resources that Apple has.
They also don’t have all the experience that Apple has. No doubt that people are more familiar with Microsoft products, but apple company has better advantages and resources which makes them perfect in this field.
The Cupertino, Calif.-based company said on Monday that it will add a new chip to its Macs that can handle more complex tasks than the current one.
Apple said the new processor will be up to 25 percent faster and more energy-efficient than its predecessor.
The new T310 processor will be launched by Apple will be based on a technology called ARM. The chip can be used in smartphones and tablets, but it’s also being adapted for use in laptops and desktop computers.
This won’t be the first time Apple has used an ARM-based processor in its computers. The company has sold millions of iPads with ARM chips inside them since 2010.
But this is the first time Apple will use an ARM chip in Macs — and it could change how people view their computers.
Apple’s move represents the latest challenge to Microsoft’s Windows business, which has dominated the market for decades.
Microsoft makes money from selling software licenses to companies like Apple and other hardware makers that want to install Windows on their machines.
But Apple doesn’t need Microsoft anymore — instead, it can design its own software and build its own chips to power its devices.
