Well, good luck with that: Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger still hopes to win back Apple Inc. as a customer, but says Intel will have to outcompete the tech giant to do so, according to MarketWatch.
In an interview aired Sunday night on “Axios on HBO,” he told Axios reporter Ina Fried that he doesn’t blame Apple for dropping Intel and deciding to make its own chips.“Apple decided they could do a better chip themselves than we could,” Gelsinger said. “And, you know, they did a pretty good job. So what I have to do is create a better chip than they can do themselves. I would hope to win back this piece of their business, as well as many other pieces of business, over time.”
Sorry, Mr. Gelsinger, but that ain’t gonna happen. At Monday’s “Unleashed” event, Apple introduced and boasted about its M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, and there’s no turning back.
