Apple is leaving Intel due to errors in the Skylake CPUs

According to a former engineer IntelThe Apple decided to stop working with the company due to errors in the Skylake CPUs series that powered the models Poppy released between 2015 and 2017.


The engineer is François Piednoël, who now works at Mercedes-Benz R&D North America. Of course, this is just a guess from a former Intel employee, but Piednoël was one of the top architects. CPU to the company.

Apple announced it last week WWDC, its transition to Arm for its future Mac models. Piednoël, however, cited Skylake Core CPUs as the key to pushing Apple away from Intel.

"Basically, Skylake's poor quality assurance is responsible for [their] obligation to move away from the platform," he said. Piednoble.

Of course, Apple's transition from Intel to Arm cannot be done overnight. It will be done gradually over a period of two years, while the first Mac models based on Arm will be released at the end of the year. Apple will continue to support Macs based on Intel for the time being.

However, Apple was not the only company that had problems with Intel's Skylake. According to Paul Thurrott, Intel's 6th generation processors were at least partially responsible for reliability problems in Surface Book first generation and Surface Pro 4.

Η Microsoft was faced with a "disaster" in 2016 when NFL Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his Surface in a race. He claimed that the tablet was often damaged. And while it's not necessarily Intel's fault and didn't mention which Surface model it used, the NFL Patriots were the ones promoting the Surface Pro 4 in 2016.


  1. Apple is never to blame; only the others.
    And it's obviously not the fault of her customers who give so much money that they can then rejoice when they break it (it will be better than the bouzoukis)
