According to people familiar with the matter, this is the first MacBook to use Apples self-developed processor, apple silicon, and its initial production orders are equivalent to nearly 20% of the total MacBook shipments in 2019. Last year, macbooks shipped 12.6 million units.
Apple plans to launch other MacBook models with its own CPU in the second quarter of next year to further replace Intels processors, people familiar with the matter added. Apple has said it plans to significantly reduce the use of Intel standard CPUs in its MacBook products within two years.
At the same time, Intels competitors HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS and other companies continue to use Intel standard CPU.
Apple is scheduled to hold an online conference on November 10, U.S. local time, and is expected to release the apple silicon MacBook. The new MacBook will be made in China, with processors manufactured by TSMC. (small)
