a Bloomberg’s new report More details appear to be on the upcoming Apple chip that will power the MacBook Pro 2021 laptop.
Bloomberg reports that its sources have confirmed a new Apple Silicon processor for the MacBook Pro that will “greatly enhance the performance and capabilities of existing M1 chips.”
In addition, Bloomberg revealed that Apple plans to launch both a 14-inch MacBook Pro and a new 16-inch model with a redesigned chassis and a MagSafe charger. Both models will feature the new Apple processor.
It has been speculated that the new Apple chip may be called the M1X or M2, but there is still no confirmation on it. However, Bloomberg has revealed some potential specs, with the next Apple processor expected to have 8 high-performance cores and 2 energy-efficient cores.
|Apple m1||Untitled Apple Chip|
|High performance core||4||8|
|Energy efficient core||4||2|
If such specifications are accurate, it would be no surprise to see that the new Apple chip would outperform the M1 in terms of performance, with double the number of high-performance cores and 4x more graphics cores. Apple suggests that the new Apple processor will come in both 16 and 32 graphics core variants.
Bloomberg also claims that the new Apple chip will have up to 64GB of memory, which is a big jump from the M1’s 16GB cap.
It is not just the MacBook Pro that will benefit from an entirely new chip, as Bloomberg has also suggested that Apple will launch additional processors for the Mac Pro and MacBook Air 2021.
A new Apple Silicon processor for the MacBook Air 2021 and 13-inch MacBook Pro is said to feature the same computing core as the M1, but will deliver faster speeds. The maximum graphics core count is also expected to increase from 8 to 10, making portables even better under heavy workloads such as video editing. According to Bloomberg, this chip could come by the end of this year.
And then there are also reports that the Mac Pro will be considered an additional new Apple Silicon processor, with 40 computing cores made up of 32 high-performance cores and 8 high-efficiency cores. The graphics core count will apparently climb to 128 as well, making it a potentially monstrous machine.
However, this new Mac Pro is not expected to be launched until 2022, so there is still a long wait until this desktop PC sees the light of day.
Either way, Apple appears to be ready to push the Silicon Revolution up a notch, as the company seeks to complete its transition from Intel processors.
