Apple exploring open-source RISC-V chips, but almost certainly not instead of ARM

9to5mac.com, Sept. 03, 2021 – 

An Apple job ad reveals that the company is exploring the use of RISC-V chips, an open-source processor tech that competes with the ARM architecture used for Apple's A-series and M-series chips.

However, while some are suggesting that this points to the company seeking to replace ARM-based processors, that's an extremely unlikely scenario ...


Apple has of course long designed its own chips for mobile and other devices. Its A-series chips are based on ARM architecture (for which Apple pays a royalty), designed by the Cupertino company and then fabricated by TSMC.
