Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Switch to ARM won't just be Macs, but better Windows PCs too- 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Apple’s former head of Mac development, Jean-Louis Gassée, has said that Apple’s decision to switch to ARM processors for Macs will make it inevitable that higher-end Windows PCs will have to do the same.

This will in turn force Intel to start making their own ARM CPUs for use in Windows machines, he argues…

Gassée left Apple in 1990, but played an extremely influential role in the future of the Mac as the man who shelved the company’s plans to license macOS to other manufacturers. He makes his case in a blog post.

First, he says, there is every reason to believe Apple’s claims that ARM processors will offer more power and greater battery life.

According to Geekbench tests, A12Z performance matches or exceeds my MacBook Pro. Apple doesn’t disclose the TDP for the A12Z processor, but we can rely on an indirect number, the iPad Pro’s 18W power adapter output. This gives us an idea of what to expect from Apple Silicon in future Macs: Significantly lower TDP without losing processing power.
