Apple rumored to be developing its own AI chip

Apple has been working on a chip to power AI software in data center servers.

Apple Chips in Data Centers, also known as Project ACDC, has been in development for a few years, but it’s not yet known when or if the chip will ever be released, as The Wall Street Journal first reported.

Apple, a leading technology manufacturer, is working towards the goal of creating its own AI chip, especially now that many other companies have already worked their way into this sector.

Apple started the project in 2018 with the idea “to develop server chips to offload from those used by Google,” shared Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman on X, adding that the project was canceled.

He also added his two cents as to why Apple might not present an in-house chip, believing that the reasons behind this are “cost, lack of differentiator and on-device nature of its LLM.”

Despite the speculations, the company promised to announce new AI-powered products at the Worldwide Developer Conference next month.

Apple has been working with the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to create the chip, but it’s not sure what the progress has been so far.

The company, like many other tech giants, has been betting on AI. Just recently, Apple discussed the introduction of its AI technology in iOS18 with OpenAI.
