News / Mobile phones Intel’s CEO reaffirms that relationship with Apple is strong

As rumors float around the ‘net all over again that Apple is considering switching from Intel processors for its Mac lineup as early as 2016, CNBC chatted with Intel’s CEO to find out how the relationship between the two companies is going.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Intel’s CEO, Brian Krzanich said, matter-of-factly, that the relationship between Intel and Apple is still very strong. The reports that Apple will use its own designed chips for upcoming Macs may have the newswires going haywire, but it would appear that Intel is perfectly accepting of any kind of future where that might happen. As Krzanich points out in the interview, Apple is allowed to pick the supplier that’s suited to provide them with the tools to move forward, in the way that they want.

Moreover, Krzanich said that the reports of Apple using its own chips for future Mac notebooks are just “persistent rumors” and nothing more. Indeed, these types of reports have surfaced off and on for some time now, and until it happens — if it ever happens — one would imagine they will continue to find their way to the top of the pile.

I just hear the same rumors. Our relationship with Apple is strong and their products are great. Apple is always going to choose the supplier who can provide them the most amount of capability in innovation for them to build on, for them to innovate. They’re a company based on innovation.

Do you think Apple is going to use its own chips in an upcoming entry-level MacBook lineup?
