There have been some rumors that Apple has given up cooperation with Intel to manufacture Mac processors and now there is new evidence that Apple has stopped cooperating with the US company.
According to a recent report, Apple collaborated with Mike Filippo, the system engineer for the company’s processing units ARM.
According to his profile on the LinkedIn website, Filippo joined Apple last month and led the development of chips Cortex-A76, Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A57.
Filippo also worked as a key expert in the CPU, Intel System Engineer and chipset designer AMD, and has extensive experience in this area, his appointment at Apple beginning to achieve its ambition in the design of processors of their own.
Apple’s decision to hire Filippo can be seen as further proof of its plans to launch Mac processors ARM In early 2020.
Apple already manufactures its own iPhones and iPads, as well as a security chip T2 in the latest Mac devices.
On the sidelines, Microsoft is also looking to stop using Intel chips Surface, and prototype testing using processors AMD and ARM.
