Intel Aims to Rival Apple’s Performance, but the Timeline Is Unrealistic
Intel’s CEO, Pat Gelsinger, has boldly claimed that Windows-powered PCs will match the performance of Mac devices by the end of 2024. While this is an ambitious goal, skepticism arises due to the perceived tight timeline. Intel is playing catch-up to Apple’s success with its in-house silicon. Although Intel has made strides with its upcoming Meteor Lake processor, which employs advanced packaging, and is adopting efficiency and performance core strategies, it faces a significant challenge in closing the performance gap with Apple.
Learning from Apple: Intel has been studying Apple’s techniques, such as advanced packaging, in its quest to enhance processor technology. The Meteor Lake processor, set to launch on December 14, reflects this effort. Intel is also exploring efficiency and performance core strategies, an approach already employed by Apple.
