Apple has considerably better processors for future Macs. The M1 chip, its eight-core processor and GPU, is just the start, and the company has made sure it focuses on Intel’s fastest circuits.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the chips in new Macs are expected to outperform high-end PCs.
In its next versions, which would include a 16-inch MacBook Pro and an iMac, Apple is expected to offer up to 20 processors: four efficiency cores (as in the M1) and 16 performance cores (four times more than in the M1) . M1).
Bloomberg notes that its development is not yet complete and that Apple may run into problems of all kinds along the way.
A new MacBook Pro and new iMacs are expected to arrive next spring, but they’ll likely have to settle for 8 or 12 performance cores.
To go even further, Apple plans to offer up to 32 performance processors with its new Mac Pro, which is expected to be the last Mac to integrate Apple Silicon, in 2022.
As for the GPU, Apple has more to prove, and in this sense Bloomberg guarantees that the processors included in the 16-inch MacBook Pro and entry-level iMac models will have 16 or 32 cores.
Bloomberg also assures us that the Mac Pro could include 64 and 128-core graphics: “Apple is working on more expensive graphics updates with 64 and 128 dedicated cores for high-end computers.”
