Ex-AMD employees shared with the world that Apple actually took a close look at its “Llano” chip, mulling over whether it will make the grade for a new MacBook Air model – but it seems that there were far too many faulty parts in the chip to have it cut the mustard. According to Brian Caulfield of Forbes, the new “fusion” processors from AMD actually had an opportunity to take over from Intel, or at least share the pie with Intel if the Llano chip actually made its way to the MacBook Air, but I guess history shows us otherwise. Fast forward to today, and you have Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors powering the Thunderbolt MacBook Air since last July, and to much success, too. Perhaps AMD might stand a chance in the future – who knows?
