In the ongoing technological rivalry between the United States and China, Huawei has emerged as a significant beneficiary, particularly in the realm of artificial intelligence (AI). The U.S. government, in its persistent efforts to hinder China’s progress in AI development, has implemented various bans on the sale of certain products from American companies to their Chinese counterparts. The focus of this battle shifted notably to AI over the past year, with China positioning itself as a frontrunner in AI, albeit still relying on U.S. company Nvidia for crucial high-performance chips.

IDC predicts a promising future for the semiconductor industry, driven by AI advancements and a stock level recovery. With a refreshed outlook signaling sustainable growth, the firm anticipates global chip revenue of $526.5 billion in 2023. Progress can be seen in the revised revenue forecast for 2024, hinting at a 20.2% year-on-year growth to $633 billion.

Exploring Apple’s groundbreaking leap in silicon innovation with their latest M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max products, it’s evident that personal computer processing is being redefined. Promising substantially expedited rendering times and performance enhancements across the board, Apple offers these not as mere upgrades, but as game-changers in the hardware world. Furthermore, these innovations signal noteworthy shifts in the broader landscape of PC CPU chips, traditionally dominated by Intel and AMD, now facing exciting competition. Dive deeper to discover the impact of these changes in the world of technology.

The first 5G smartphones are expected to debut in 2019, however Apple is in no rush to jump on this technology train, according to a report by Fast Company. The tech giant is expected to launch their 5G iPhone in 2020, with an Intel 8161 5G modem chip installed to enable access to the cutting-edge network. This news does not come as a complete surprise, since Apple tends to wait for new technologies to become fully developed before adding these technologies to their devices, such as occurred with 3G or LTE enabled Apple gadgets. In the meantime, Intel has fallen out of favor with Apple, since the chip manufacturer seems to be unable to solve the overheating problem with their forerunner 8060 chip. While this issue is not serious enough for Apple to approach Qualcomm and initiate discussions about 5G modem chip development for the iPhone, there have been…
