ARM Steps up their Performance Game
There's been a lot of talk lately about the AMD Ryzen CPU, but ARM doesn't want to be discounted out of the fight just yet. They are working hard to step up their performance game to keep up with Intel and AMD - but at the same time they are committed to excellent battery life and excellent efficiency. ARM has come a long, long way and once they enter the desktop CPU market, things are going to get really interesting.
The improvements increase the possibility of Apple switching over to ARM architecture on its Macs. That hasn’t happened yet as Intel’s mainstream Core chips are significantly faster than current ARM processors. Like other chipmakers, Apple licenses ARM architecture, which it already uses in iPhones, iPads, and other devices.
