Based on multiple benchmarks and reviews, Intel lags behind Apple in terms of performance, with the Apple Silicon not only appearing to outperform Intel’s CPUs but has also proven to be more energy efficient. If anything, that justifies Apple’s decision to ditch Intel and move to its own hardware.
We imagine Intel would be keen to win Apple back as a customer, or at least produce CPUs that can outperform Apple to show they’re still the best at what they do. Based on a leaked roadmap posted on Twitter by AdoredTV, Intel plans to do this by the end of 2023.
It wasn’t a rumor, it was her plan. I spoke to Intel engineers working on the project and was given this slide a bit early as well. If they don’t make TSMC 3nm anymore, it’s a decision that has been made since the video. pic.twitter.com/zr0FojtCv6

The roadmap suggests that the company believes that by the end of 2023 and with the launch of its Arrow Lake processors, it will be able to create a CPU capable of surpassing that of the currently most powerful M1 Max -Chipsets from Apple to surpass the chipset that Apple has made so far.
However, we have to question Intel’s alleged plans. Sure, it’s possible they’ll have a processor that could outperform the M1 Max in 2023, but by then we imagine Apple will have developed the M2 Max, which would obviously be more powerful than the M1 Max, so feels rather than Intel catching up.
It remains to be seen what kind of changes the M2 Max will offer, but the company is expected to launch the M2 later this year, so we may know a bit more by then.
