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.

A consortium of nine technology companies – Intel, Cisco, Dell EMC, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Facebook, Google, Alibaba and Huawei – has been formed in order to create and launch a new standard, called Compute Express Link (CXL). This project will accelerate ever-expanding data workloads, such as high-performance computing, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), rich media services, and cloud applications. Jim Pappas, director of technology initiatives at Intel, said in a statement: “CXL is an important milestone for data-centric computing and will be a foundational standard for an open, dynamic accelerator ecosystem. Like USB and PCI Express, which Intel also cofounded, we can look forward to a new wave of industry innovation and customer value delivered through the CXL standard.” The new cluster of tech giants, described as “the biggest group of influencers driving a modern interconnect standard”, also affirmed the CXL Specification 1.0, which enables…
