Apple has gone on record saying they will release new Macs with Intel CPUs during a roughly 2-year transition period and that they then will also still support Intel on Mac for many more years. In light of this and the fact that Apple remains a really big Intel customer, isn’t it a bit surprising how vocal Intel has all of a sudden become about the Mac supposedly being a bad platform? It can’t play this or that game, it doesn’t have USB-A ports, yada yada. Intel, did you just only notice that?
It’s hard to imagine a company making ads how an entire product line is actually a really poor choice when that product line is still one of their large customers. Has the M1 and Apple’s early success with Apple Silicon on Mac made Intel that desperate? If anybody had doubts, Intel’s reaction can really only serve as more evidence that Apple must be on the right track with M1.
