Is this competition getting tougher and identical?
Microsoft’s Surface ARM Chips are speculated to be created within the next year to compete with Apple’s Silicon Chip MacBook M1. And the recent Apple MacBook M1 is quite impressive for its faster and smoother system. However, according to Bloomberg reports, Microsoft is currently looking for the possibility of manufacturing its own chips, which could leave Intel behind.
Microsoft’s Surface ARM Chips Speculations
The initial reports were focusing more on the new chips that can be used for servers powering the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. But besides that, it intrigued consumers of the possibility of a first-party ARM chip for Surface products that might be the one-size-fits-all processor.
However, the company didn’t give any confirmation on the speculation of its existence. A Microsoft spokesperson only stated, “Because silicon is a foundational building block for technology, we’re continuing to invest in our own capabilities in areas like design, manufacturing and tools, while also fostering and strengthening partnerships with a wide range of chip providers.”
If this chip will exist, this could go one of the two different ways. This could be also a revelation, offering not only impressive power but also a much stronger battery life that can at par to its fast processor.
As M1 Macs has been recently launched with the new MacBook airs, Microsoft has also updated their Edge browser. This would mean that it could at par or even give a promising optimized performance for Macs.
Microsoft announced the update through the official Edge developers tweet that entices users to download and install the newest version of the Microsoft Edge Canary Channel. Though, the company has not specified the upgrade and performance improvements that any user could expect from the M1-optimized version. But whatever the case is, the Edge users would likely celebrate on this one.
