Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) could replace Intel Corporation's (NASDAQ: INTC) chips with Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: AMD) in Macs, according to a TechRadar report over the weekend.

A tweet leaking apparent code for macOS Cataline 10.15.4 beta referenced AMD's APUs, which are CPUs that come with integrated graphics, the publication said. The code mentions Picasso, Raven, Renoir and Van Gogh – all AMD APUs. 

It isn't the first time such mentions have been made, according to Mac Rumors. The macOS Catalina code mentioned the AMD processors in November too, the publication said.
