Let’s face it, and Intel didn’t have an excellent year in sales as 2020. But the company tried its best to make its products more functional but still faced several delays in production due to several issues.
The company has dominated every processor market for over a decade, except for the mobile chipset segment. But the year 2020, brought a lot of changes along with it. Not only is Intel’s long-time rival AMD squeezing in Intel’s dominant sectors and establishing its place, but Apple has also entered the desktop and Notebook processor market and has managed to impress everyone.
The Cupertino giant was initially a key client of Intel but moved away from Intel to in-house silicon. Even, the world’s biggest software giant, Microsoft is planning to leave intel and develop its ARM series processors. But is still adapting Intel though for the time being.
With Pat Gelsinger to helm Intel’s office from next month, we may soon see some changes in how the company operates. The future CEO is unhappy with how the company has fallen behind Apple in CPU technology, considering that the Cupertino Giant is relatively new in the field.
“We have to deliver better products to the PC ecosystem than any possible thing that a lifestyle company in Cupertino makes…We have to be that good, in the future.”
Instead of focusing on Apple, the blue team needs to catch up to the sophisticated technology of TSMC as its main rivals Apple, AMD, and Qualcomm, among others, use to fabricate their chips.
