As everyone already knows, Apple is very keen to minimize the impact on its business, and in particular production, from various third-party companies. And if we talk about processors, then the company has recently successfully made the transition from Intel chips to its own, M1, designed on the ARM architecture. Now it has become known that at the moment Apple is no longer the only company that wants to reduce its dependence on Intel. Thus, if you refer to the reports of the Bloomberg publication, Microsoft is right now developing its own processors on the ARM architecture in a similar way, which will be designed specifically for Surface devices, as well as its own cloud infrastructure.
And despite the fact that at the moment there are not so many details about this project, Bloomberg still reports that the tech giant is working on one additional of its own chip, which Microsoft plans to use in its data centers. Moreover, the same source says that the company is also exploring the possibility of using exactly the same design and architecture of processors in the upcoming line of Surface computers, although he notes that Microsoft is more likely to use its processor “in a cloud context” rather than on “physical computers”.
Be that as it may, at the moment Microsoft uses Intel-based processors in its devices. They are used in almost all of the company’s ready-to-sell devices, as well as in the support servers for its Azure cloud services. Frank Shaw, a Microsoft spokesperson, spoke of the news as follows: “Since silicon is a fundamental building block for technology, we continue to invest in our own capabilities in areas such as design, manufacturing and tools for creating silicon processors, as well as forging and strengthening partnerships with the widest possible range of chip suppliers. ”
You can of course recall that the company had previously used ARM processors in their computers, and they turned out to be, to put it mildly, not impressive. However, this was due to the fact that they were based on an already existing design from Qualcomm, due to which the processors could not show themselves as worthy as they are capable of. We hope that this time everything will be different.
