AtThe MAC has been on custom chips for more than 10 years, and its iPhone based chip architecture provides the best per watt performance. The design of the new system strives to bring the best balance between power and performance.
apple also noted that Apple Silicon will use a variety of customization technologies, including neural networks, GPU、Secure Enclave, etc.
Like mobile platforms, apple wants to bring new processors to the Mac that combine performance and power consumption. The security zone can provide excellent protection, and components such as high-performance GPU can also bring the desired experience.
In terms of compatibility, all applications running on Intel hardware platforms will be able to run on new Macs and custom processors.
Everything developers need is built into Xcode. What they need to do is open the project and recompile it. It only takes a few days for the transformation.
Rosetta is the technology used by apple in its transition from PowerPC to Intel processor. Now, Rosetta 2 can make MAC more seamless from Intel processor to Apple silicon platform. Mac OS Big Sur will include Rosetta 2, which automatically converts Intel applications to Apple silicon applications at installation time.
Apple promises to achieve a new level of performance and lower power consumption by turning to internal processors. Apple is designing its own series of SOCS for Mac. These SOCS have unique functions for Mac, but they share the same architecture in all product lines.
Apple turned to its own arm chip, just as the company released Mac OS Big Sur, which includes a major redesign of Mac OS and a functional update of messages and maps built-in applications.
