Yesterday we brought word that Apple was expected to drop Intel in favor of its own ARM-based processors for its Mac line within the next couple of years. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich addressed these rumors earlier today on CNBC stating that the relationship between Apple and Intel remains “strong”.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich appeared today on CNBC’s Squawk Box to talk about the financial future of the technology company. Following discussions about Intel’s disappointing Q1 forecast and flat PC sales, CNBC anchor Betsy Quick questioned the executive about rumors that Apple may eventually drop Intel chips from its Mac computers in favor of its own processors. Unfazed by the questioning, Krzanich toed the company line, revealing no new information about the future of Intel’s relationship with Apple and simply calling it a “strong” one.
