According to the reports, Apple is planning to develop a new ARM-based processor with 32 high-performance core by late 2021. Rumors suggest that this processor could emerge in a “half-sized Mac Pro” in 2022. Along with this, the company is also developing 16-high performance cores for newer versions of the MacBook Pro and iMac. 128 high-performance core, is also being predicted for future Apple Silicon designs.
Recently the reports claimed that Apple released its first Mac, powered by its own chip. The recently launched new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini used the company’s M1 chip which features 4 high-performance cores. However, Intel chips are used for it’s most powerful devices like Mac Pro. But Apple intends to use its own chips over the course of 2 years.
Reports also claim that Apple is also working on GPU cores. Apple currently uses M1 chips which have 8 high-performance core. Apple uses either eight or twelve high-performance cores in its devices.
In the past few months, Apple has organized numerous events unveiling its M1 chip and ARM-based Mac. They also arranged a “One more thing” event to unveil its Silicon chips for Mac. If you want to know more about these events you can check it here.
Apple has been planning to move its entire Mac lineup to its own silicon chip from the start. And now in the next two years, they are going to make this happen, as they have already started building powerful chips with high-end performance and efficiency. But replacing it with Intel-based machines like Mac Pro is a trivial task. So it still has a far way to go.
