Rumor: a new Mac Pro will complete the transition to Apple silicon in Q4 this year

The current Mac Pro is available with an Intel Xeon processor with up to 28 cores

While Apple included brand-new GPU alternatives to the Mac Pro configurator in 2014, there have not been any kind of significant modifications to the line of product because 2019. It is the last item line not to have a choice with an Apple M-series chip. Leakster @DylanDKT published that this will certainly transform in the last 3 months of this year.

The brand-new Mac Pro will supposedly make use of a chipset that rests over the M1 Max (which powers the MacBook Pro 14 and also 16). Weve listened to broach a double M1 Max, basically a Max chip with additional equipment as several as 40 CPU cores and also 128 GPU cores (despite the fact that limit just has an 8 +2 CPU setup and also 32 GPU cores). Notably, it will certainly not be a variation of the M2, which will likely present a brand-new design for the cores.

While the Mac mini and also iMac are still readily available with an Intel chip, we sense those will certainly be disappearing quickly. Dylan points out a brand-new iMac Pro inbound, which will presumably make use of something beefier than the M1 Max (though not as effective as the Mac Pro chip).

Desktop Macs apart, there are Apple M2-powered gadgets being available in the 2nd fifty percent of this year, reports the leakster. The MacBook Pro 13 (among the very first M1 gadgets), will certainly be changed with a 14 version making use of the M2. This adjustment will certainly be coupled with a cost bump. There will certainly likewise be a brand-new MacBook Air with an M2, which will most likely maintain the 13 diagonal for its screen.

The thinking behind such a department is that the M2 will likely be fabbed on a smaller sized node (the existing M1 chips originate from TSMCs 5 nm fabs). This will certainly cause a reduced return, making huge chips (with several cores) unviable. The 5 nm node will certainly have grown sufficient to permit for 40-core beasts.
