Apple reportedly considering replacement for Intel chips in future Macs

It looks like there might be a divorce between Apple and Intel in the making. Report has emerged that the Cupertino giant is considering a replacement of Intel silicon in future Mac offerings for its own chips.

Such a move should hardly be a surprise as Apple has amassed quite a lot of expertise already in developing the chips for its iOS devices. As they grow more and more powerful with each product cycle, it is only logical that it won’t be long before they pack enough oomph to power a Mac with all the bells and whistles.

Another benefit from such a move from Apple would be the company’s ability to unify the experience which its mobile and desktop devices have to offer – much like Microsoft has done with Windows 8. Currently, there is a significant difference between OS X and iOS.
