It’s been rumored for years, but now it’s finally real: Apple is bringing its ARM processor technology to desktops.

Apple mobile processors have been the fastest on the market for years, sometimes a generation ahead of their Android counterparts in terms of raw performance. But on desktop, Apple has relied on Intel processors since 2006. That’s changing today with Apple Silicon.

Apple Silicon builds on 10 generations of mobile processors, which have improved 100x on performance since the original iPhone. Apple promises to provide better performance while using less power than existing desktop processors.

Developing… Refresh for updates.
