The former Apple engineer who designed the M1 SOC has come to Intel to ‘create groundbreaking SOC operations’

Intel has just acquired the new engineer behind the Apple M1 SOC for Mac and is now ready to create a groundbreaking SOC for Team Blue.

The Apple engineer, who designed the M1 SOC, hired Intel to create a leading SOC operations center

Jeff Wilson, former Apple engineer and Director of Mac Systems Engineering announce On his LinkedIn profile, he has joined Intel and will work with Intel’s engineering teams to create a new generation of SOC companies.

SOC, also known as System-on-chip, is a complete solution that includes CPU, GPU, IO and other IP addresses on the same chip. As Intel opts for a more hybrid architecture approach, the SOC design is an ideal choice for blue teams that will use next-generation process and new technologies, such as FORVEROS and EMIB, to create additional computing solutions for clients and servers.

It’s been an amazing journey and I can’t be proud of everything we’ve accomplished during my tenure, culminating in the Apple Silicon transition with the SOC, M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max systems.

I am pleased to announce that I am starting a new position as Intel Fellow, CTO Design Engineering Group, Client SoC Architecture at Intel Corporation. I couldn’t be more excited to be able to work with the amazing teams helping build the leading Special Operations Centers out there. Big things are waiting for us!

Prior to joining Apple, Jeff worked at Intel as a Principal Engineer and Chief Engineering Officer for client computer chips from 2010-2013 and Chief Engineer at NVIDIA (2007-2008). While we don’t know what Jeff will be working on as his next project at Inteli, it’s worth noting that famed and legendary chip engineer Jim Keller recently joined Intel as Senior Vice President of Silicon Engineering. between 2018-2020. Jim also worked at Apple and joined AMD to work on engineering their Zen core. With so many senior engineers, Intel definitely has a lot of tools for consumers planned for the next few years.

We recently saw Intel Meteor Lake SOC test chips from the Fab 42 in Arizona and we also know Arrow Lake, Lunar Lake, and Nova Lake are coming. All of this will be a major step in designing a hybrid SOC for the blue team, which will help them compete with future Apple Mx and Zen solutions from AMD.
