Apple has been developing its own platforms for smartphones for a long time, and for the last few years for PCs. These SoCs are built on Apple’s own CPU, but are based on Arm architecture. Apple reportedly pays Arm less than 30 cents for each chip it produces.
It’s unclear what the normal price is, but Apple is reported to pay less than all other licensees. In addition, this same amount (less than 30 cents per chip) is paid for any Apple SoC, regardless of its characteristics. Because of all this, despite the fact that the Cupertino giant is one of Arm’s largest customers, the latter receives less than 5% of its total revenue from Apple.
Back in 2017, SoftBank’s CEO gathered a group of executives from Arm, which SoftBank had just acquired at the time, to complain about Apple. At the time, he said Apple was paying more for the piece of plastic that protects the screens of the new iPhones than for the Arm license. What the amount was at that time is unknown, but the current 30 cents (more precisely, less than 30 cents) clearly indicate that if SoftBank tried to change something through negotiations, it did not work out.

Intel introduced processors with as many as 288 cores, but all these cores are small. The formal announcement of the CPU Xeon Sierra Forest took place
Intel has formally introduced the Sierra Forest generation Xeon processors, which are distinguished by a huge number of cores.
These CPUs will be released later this year. In the current press release, Intel talks about these processors in relation to the telecommunications segment, but the new products will be focused not only on it.
The most important difference between the new CPUs is the presence of only small cores, which will be an unusual solution for Intel server processors. Moreover, there will be up to 288 of these cores in the top models of the line. Let us remind you that the leader among x86-compatible CPUs is now AMD Epyc Bergamo, which has 128 cores. True, small Intel cores do not support Hyper-Threading, so you should not expect 576 threads from them.
But Intel talks about very high energy efficiency. In addition, Sierra Forest will provide 2.7 times higher performance per rack compared to the 2021 server platform. True, Intel compares Sierra Forest with solutions based on CPUs with large cores, which is not very correct. But in any case, the advantage is obvious.
Sierra Forest will be manufactured using the Intel 3 process technology and have an LGA 7529 version.
