Intel wants to put the arrow with “Arrow Lake”the fifteenth generation of CPUs with which aims to surpass Apple’s M1s. Since Cupertino introduced its proprietary SoCs at the end of 2020, the scenario of the laptop market has changed radically: in fact, there is no ARM alternative capable of providing the same level of performance combined with energy efficiency.
Apple has a great technological advantage, but Intel obviously remains well positioned in the PC market, and aims to narrow the gap and perhaps succeed in overtaking (and not just in power, as with the latest Core i9). And in these hours a document has popped up on the net that would reveal the chip giant’s plans for the next few years. The one shared by AdoredTVin fact, it should be there Intel roadmap which reveals how with the fifteenth generation of CPU, “Arrow Lake”, the priority will be given to mobile solutions.
And this means, therefore, that it will be chips that aim to rival Apple’s M1s, aiming at an increase in the ratio between performance (however improved) and energy efficiency. To do this, Intel will adopt node technology a 3 nanometers of TSMC, the same company that makes the semiconductors behind Apple Silicon. This will allow to obtain CPUs capable of performing the lightest activities, those that are part of the work routine of a very large user base, reducing consumption to a minimum, to the benefit of autonomy (and, it is assumed, also of temperatures).
So far so good, but there is an obstacle: time. The roadmap, if true, speaks of a launch on the market of the new generation of processors expected for the end of 2023, in more than a year and a half. Meanwhile, Apple’s M1s are already a reality, and Cupertino certainly won’t stand idle in the meantime.
