Apple moving from Intel to ARM processors?
The latest rumor in the microprocessor space has Apple moving away from Intel and instead adopting ARM architectures for its laptops.

Apple will make the move when ARM releases 64-bit versions of its processors, likely at the end of 2012.



The source accurately reported in 2009 that Apple would begin moving away from Nvidia, and mostly all new iMacs now either have an AMD Radeon or Intel integrated GPU.

Additionally, Apple will "presumably" move their desktops to ARM, as well, with the deal all but set in stone.

Apple currently uses ARM architectures in iOS devices.

    Apple will make the move when ARM releases 64-bit versions of its processors, likely at the end of 212.

    It should be 2012.
