Apple M1 Successor with Up to 32-Core CPU, 128-Core GPU – No more Intel processors, no more AMD/Nvidia Graphics
In a new report, Mark Gurman, a well-known journalist who is always reliable, reveals that Apple is working on a series of new M-series PC processors as Apple M1 successor. The new versions appear to be better positioned, as they will not only be used in the 16-inch Macbook Pro, but will also cover the iMac, Mac Pro, and other product lines.
According to a detailed report from Bloomberg by Mark Gurman, Apple is working on a new ARM-based processor with up to eight or twelve core variables at first launch in 2021 and up to 32 high-performance CPU cores that are expected to appear on Mac computers later in 2022.
According to the report, the 32-core chip will be available in 2022 on a new “Mac Pro” that will be half the size of the original one. Apple is also developing up to 16 performance cores + 4 efficiency cores CPUs for the new MacBook Pro and iMac, which will be available as early as spring 2021. Bloomberg notes that while Apple is designing processors with 16 high-performance CPU cores, it may choose to enable processors with 8 or 12 cores, depending on volume production.
According to Bloomberg, Apple is also developing chips with more GPU cores. The current M1 chip comes with seven or eight GPU cores, and Apple is testing 16 GPU and 32 GPU models, and developing a 128-core chip by the end of 2021 or 2022.
Apple has already released the first Mac computers with its chip, including the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, all using Apple’s M1 chip, which has a CPU with four high-performance and four high-efficiency cores. However, the company’s more powerful computers, such as the Mac Pro, still use the Intel chip. Apple has said that it intends to convert its entire Mac product line to its chips within two years.
