When there is a technology and its advancement, then such things happen. Companies tend to produce more advanced devices and then act like kids when it comes to competition.
Recently it was noticed that Intel was rejected by Apple for AMD processors, to which Intel was not happy. Sometimes, it is funny to watch such big companies take some aggressive actions to look better than their competitors. The latest example of this action is Intel and Apple, to which intel spurned Apple to provide chips for Mac.
Intel provided chips to Apple from 2006 till the last year 2020, when Apple changed its strategy to which Intel was not happy. Apple introduced its Silicon chips at the Worldwide Developers Conference.
Intel reacted inappropriately as the conference was based on a presentation that stated that “generation i5-H series notebook processors” provide the best gaming experience In one slide. In contrast, in the next slide, Apple said, “The best MAC laptops for gaming,” comparing it with “Generation i5 H-series notebook processors,” claiming it as the most powerful MAC laptops.
Apple silicon chips were a benchmark for MI Macbook Pro and Apple Macbook Pro, including an Intel Core i9-9980 HK processor. Here comes the competition as this aspect is not cleared. It is possible that the Apple silicon was performing better than Intel i9-9980 HK processors, or Intel doesn’t want to appreciate the new advancement of the Apple.
The rivalry does not stop here. Intel’s turn, which then provided the list of several games that are only supported by Intel processors and are not accessible to MacOS. The games were;
- Call of modern duty warfare
- Apex legends
- Call of duty warzone
- Grand theft auto V
- Genish Impact
- Dead of daylight
- Rainbow Six Siege
- Rocket league
- Monster Hunter World
There are more games as well which are not supported by macOS, according to Intel’s list.
Making It Normal With Apple
Alan Dexter of PC gamer discussed this rivalry between Apple and Intel and said, “To be very honest, playing games on MAC is extremely rubbish. But, shockingly, Intel is still so angry. I have also asked Intel about making it normal, to which Intel replied, “Apple has introduced its silicon chips publicly, which is too much of an insult for us, and now Apple is our competitor”.
Apple is now introducing the next-gen M2 Mac processor, which is expected to launch at the end of this year.
