Rumors about Apple’s intention to transfer its Mac PCs to its own single-chip systems have been around for a very long time. And if initially they seemed very strange, since the performance of any consumer SoCs was then very modest relative to full-fledged CPUs, then today there are no doubts about the viability of such configurations.
If you believe the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the first such Mac will be released next year, and in the first half. Simply put, in about a year.
Presumably, the basis of such a PC will be the five-nanometer Apple SoC, but there are no details about it yet. Also, the analyst did not undertake to assume that it was for the PC that he would be the first to switch to a new platform. Given all the nuances, we can assume that it will be the MacBook Air, since even today such a laptop is far from being based on the most productive Intel processors.
