Intel has unveiled intentions to assist its next line of business laptop chips succeed in using Apple’s M1 hardware.
The company has announced that it would soon expand its Evo spec to notebooks and develop "vPro An Evo Design"-labelled laptops for businesses, according to The Register. In December, Intel intends to launch 35 new machines, according to the company.
Intel’s 12th-Gen Alder Lake P-Series and U-series chips are designed for thinner and lighter laptops. These processors are based on Intel’s 10nm process (strangely called Intel 7) and combine Performance (P-cores) and Efficiency (E-cores).
Intel’s vPro Evo is powered by Intel.
It’s all a bit confusing, especially if you’re not already deep into Intel’s branding, but the fundamentals are that:
The P-series is the top-end processors, with eight P-cores and eight E-cores. There are also eight E-cores and four P-cores in the top-end versions.
The U-series is the more middle-range, with a heavy emphasis on the E-cores rather than P-cores. The i7 and i5 models have two P-cores and eight E-cores, while the i3 model only has four E-cores.
All processors, including Wi-Fi 6e, PCIe 4 and 3, Thunderbolt 4, and gigabit Ethernet, are supported.
Intel’s 13th-generation then 14th-gen CPUs might launch at a speed that’ll worries AMD. There’s a catch >Intel to combine CPU and GPU cores into a terrible supercomputing chip.
Outside of Intel, there is a lot of information.
Intel has been in a bit of a tight week for the past year, as the once-dominant chipmaker has fallen behind rivals, lost Apple’s business, and is now under a new CEO, Pat Gelsinger.
This has allowed a slew of competitors TSMC, AMD, Nvidia, and Apple to gain market share and ground.
In recent years, Apple has been flying when it comes to processor technology, accumulating its knowledge of the iPhone and iPad A-series chips.
The M-series chips, which are found on its laptops, desktops, and iPads, are a real breakthrough, offering vast amounts of processing power with very little output.
Intel is naive of the race, but it has long plans to expand into semiconductor manufacturing (a very lucrative business) as well as its bread and butter laptop and desktop chips.
