Fifteen years later, Apple wants to end it with Intel.

 Auckland Apple And Silicon Valley is preparing for Intel's much-anticipated breakup, signaling the end of both in the tech industry.


Apple has been working on chips for years to replace the Intel microprocessors used in the computer. According to five people who have knowledge of the effort. It can announce its plans.

Apple's move is an indication of the growing power of large tech companies to expand their capabilities and reduce their dependence on key partners. Facebook is investing millions of dollars in Indonesia's fastest growing app, India's telecom giant and a fiber optic cable across Africa. Amazon has built its own cargo plane and delivery truck. And Google and Apple continue to buy upstart to expand their empire.

Taiwan uses semiconductor manufacturing to partner with Apple to build similar components designed for iPhones and iPads, which is expected to make Apple's use of Foxconn to collect iPhones in Asian factories in Asian factories.

Intel and Apple declined to comment. Bloomberg had previously reported on the Apple plan.

Other major tech companies, such as Amazon and Google, have designed some of their chips, both because of their performance and potential price. Some functions, such as artificial intelligence and the rendering of 3D images, can be handled more efficiently in special-purpose circuits than in Intel Mens, rather than in general-purpose microprocessors.

Since 2005, Max has effectively used the same Intel chips that most PCs do. Creating your own processor will give Apple more control over how Apple Macs work on computers. Apple has always designed chips used on iPhones and iPads, adding features to customize the design licensed by a semiconductor firm owned by the Conglomerate Software Bank of Japan. Apple is also expected to rely on Army technology to improve compatibility with its upcoming Mac chips with its mobile devices.


Apple, a large chip design team, has created a 150-employee start-up, based on the 2008 purchase of PA Semi. Many of them once worked at Intel, including Johnny Shrose, who reports directly to Apple chief executive Tim Cook.

The move by Apple will be a symbolic blow to Intel when the general public and military officials are concerned about the weakness of the U.S. leadership in chip production, which it considers important for China’s ability to maintain a border on China. Last week, Congress passed legislation, with rare bilateral agreements, to spend tens of billions of dollars on U.S. research and production on semiconductors.

In the semiconductor business, Intel has long held U.S. standards, especially in the complex manufacturing process that turns silicon wafers into chips that power computers, smartphones, cars and consumer devices.

At the very least, the financial impact on Intel will change Intel sells about $ 3.4 billion worth of chips to Mac every year, according to Eco-analyst CJ Muse. It's less than 5 percent of Intel's annual sales, and Music predicts that the blowout will be around half because Apple can only replace chips on some Mac models. Apple sells about 20 million Macs a year.

"It's not chicken feed, it's about 40 million years of Apple PC sales," said team analyst Tim Bazrin, who has been tracking Apple for about 40 years. Provides Intel chips for almost every PC.

But the long-term impact could be serious for Intel Chipmaker has long been linked to the track record of delivering the most powerful computing engine in the market at high profit margins. But chips for new tech products like Intel smartphones and tablets have not sold well.

Apple's last chip transmission for Mac, in 2005, was seen as a major milestone in the long-term return of Steve Jobs, the company's founder, and a major victory for Intel. Mac has long relied on a design called PowerPC, which was a collaboration between Apple, Motorola and IBM. But Jobs has battled that Intel can deliver very fast performance

That point of sale has been shattered by the troubling news of Intel’s huge factories. Many of the company’s successes in computers come from the history of packing more transistors in each category of silicon, which allows chips to continue to do more computational work at lower cost.

But Intel has fallen short in that industrial race to miniaturize. Intel's latest process for making chips, once expected, did not enter high-volume production until 2015. Late Taiwan helped semiconductors and Samsung Electronics to produce chips designed by multiple companies. Competitors exploited the Intel lag to lead a technology.


Handel Jones, chief executive of the international business advisory service to the chip industry, said Intel was 12 months behind.

Apple has been plagued by problems with productivity, according to three people familiar with the situation, who have not been allowed to speak on confidential transactions between companies. Intel also outperformed expectations for other types of chips, creating a production shortage that reduced sales for some PC makers last year. The merger further damaged Intel's image as a reliable producer.
