• Intel released the 11th generation H-series laptop processor
  • Intel says Apple provides a poor gaming experience
  • Intel-based PC surpassed competitor’s performance during a series of test

Close on the heels of Intel's 11th generation H-series laptop processor launch Sunday, the company has openly slammed Apple for allegedly providing customers with a poor gaming experience with its ARM-powered Macs.

Intel's latest chip features thin designs, high volume and offers up to 5GHZ clock speed as well as WiFi 6/6E support and 1080p gameplay on some titles.

Immediately after the 11th generation H-series laptop chip launch, Intel held a separate press briefing where the company spoke about how its chip surpasses its competitors. Intel threw criticisms at AMD, ARM and Apple, PC Gamer reported.

During the press briefing, Ryan Shrout, Intel’s chief performance strategist, said that it is Apple Mac’s poor gaming experience that makes the Intel-powered Windows computers superior.

Shrout added that macOS does not support most of the popular games that enthusiasts would love to have on their devices. Mac users will need a third-party emulator to run their favorite games. However, the company highlighted that using an emulator resulted in poor gaming output after they ran the “Valheim” in Parallels on a Mac.

Intel also compared the AMD Radeon Pro 5600M GPU 16-inch Intel-based MacBook Pro and the Core i5 11400H processor with GeForce RTX 3060 GPU powered PC. The chipmaker showed a chart showcasing the results they gathered running games on both devices.

The figures showed that on each of the company’s chosen tests, the Intel-based MacBook surpassed its competitor’s performance. The chart showed that the 16-inch MacBook Pro did not come up with the 11th generation core i5 H-series powered device’s performance during the entire trial.

MacRumors suggests that Intel seems to be leveraging on gaming to convince its customers that devices powered by Intel chips are way better than the Apple Silicon-powered Macs.

When asked if Intel is burning bridges with Apple, the company representative said, “Apple has been very public about moving to its own silicon and that it is now a competitor.”

Back in January, before taking his office as the new Intel CEO, Pat Gelsinger called out on the company to step up its efforts to compete against Apple, which he then dubbed a “lifestyle company in Cupertino.”
