Key M1 Mac Engineer Departs Apple to Intel

Jeff Wilcox, Apple’s former director of Mac systems architecture, announced this week that he has left Apple to take on a new role at Intel. as noted linkedin (Via Tom’s Hardware), Wilcox was part of Apple’s M1 team and was instrumental in the transition from Intel chips to Apple silicon.


Wilcox’s profile states that he “led the transition” to Apple silicon for all Macs, and before that, he developed the SoC and system architecture for the T2 coprocessor used in Intel Macs.

Director of the Mac system architecture team that includes all system architectures, signal integrity and power integrity for Mac systems. Apple led the transition to silicon for all Macs, starting with the M1 chip, and developed the SoC and system architecture behind the T2 coprocessor before that.

When Wilcox announced his departure from Apple in December, he said he was pursuing a new opportunity and was proud of what he had achieved at Apple.

After an amazing eight years I have decided to leave Apple and pursue another opportunity. It has been an incredible ride and with the M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max SoCs and Systems culminating in the Apple Silicon Transition, I cannot be prouder of all the work I have achieved during my time there. I will be sorely missed by all my Apple colleagues and friends, but I look forward to the next journey that begins earlier in the year.

Wilcox spent eight years working at Apple, and as of this week, he’s the Design Engineering Group CTO at Intel.

The Apple silicon team is led by Johnny Srouji, Apple’s vice president of hardware technologies, and it’s unclear whether Wilcox’s departure will have a greater impact on the development of Apple silicon chips. Apple is well into its Apple silicon transition and expects to complete it in 2022 with the launch of new Mac Pro and iMac Pro machines that use Apple silicon chips.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said in October that he hoped to win back Apple’s business by making a “better chip” than Apple in the future. He also said that he plans to make sure Intel’s products are “better than theirs” and that Intel has a more open and “lively” ecosystem. “I’m going to work hard to win Tim’s business in this area,” he said.

Intel introduced a new Core i9 processor designed for laptops earlier this week, and the company has claimed it’s faster than Apple’s M1 Max chip used in 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Is.
