Intel faces perhaps its toughest competition in a long time: AMDâ€™s Ryzen chips are eating into the market share of Intelâ€™s Core chips, and Arm chips like Appleâ€™s M1Â are finally getting some respect. So why should PC makers, let alone consumers, buy Intel? The answer, according to chief executive Bob Swan, is a simple one: supply.
Swan said that Intel is ready and able to supply PC makers with chips, especially its new 11th-gen Tiger Lake parts. Swan also touted its Evo co-design initiatives in a small roundtable with reporters as CES 2021 kicked off.Â
