Apple is designing an ARM-based processor chip to augment the main Intel processor within its Mac laptop computers, according to a Bloomberg report.
The chip, with the name T310, is being designed to take over functionality for low power operation while Intel, the incumbent supplier, retains its place for high performance operation. The report does not state which of ARM's processor cores the T310 would be based on, nor whether it would be in a single, dual or quad-core form.
