    That is a very misleading article. The author and Bloomberg are talking about co-processors. He uses just "processors" after the first paragraph to make it sound like Apple will be replacing Intel CPUs with it's own A series chips. That is simply not true. The author should have explained what co-processors actually do. Mostly handle just power management and security. He is just using this as click bait.

    I read that article, or one like it and assumed the same thing. For those of us who are not as knowledgable, can anyone explain simply how a hackintosh without a co-processor handles the same OS needs? Or more precisely, how a hackintosh can run without the Apple co-processor.

    Until Apple drops support for Macs without the co-processor this is a non-issue.
