Apple announced in 2020 that it would be moving away from Intel’s CPUs for Mac computers in favor of in-house silicon chips. Apple then said that Macs needed to be more powerful and efficient before the company could enter the gaming space. The company’s vice president of country product marketing, Bob Borchers, said Macs will have to maintain strong battery life and deliver solid performance to make the transition from Intel CPUs as smooth as possible. With the M1-powered MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, we’ve seen Apple more than double the battery life on its computers. Now, the company is setting its third target for gaming – the M-series chips.
Apple computers use M-series Mac CPUs
Now, while traditional gaming computers use a different powerful graphics card such as the Nvidia GeForce RTC 3080 series or the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series, Apple’s computers use M-series Mac CPUs with custom integrated graphics cores. To enter gaming, Apple may have to install more powerful GPUs to integrate graphics with Mac computers.

While the facts mostly point towards the Cupertino-based giant entering PC gaming soon. The company’s long-term strategy for PC gaming is still unclear, riding on the performance benefits that the M-series silicon chips provide.
