Although it is only recently that we have started to know its more specific characteristics, we have been talking for months about what will be the high-end chips that will appear in the most powerful Macs. And so far tech media tentatively dubbed it ‘M1X’, but according to one latest leak it seems the name is the final name
The data has a source from 9to5Mac, who claims to know that M1X is going to be the name of the most powerful variant of the M1 chip and that We can find in the high end MacBook Pro and iMac which we will see during the rest of the year.
M1 or M1X, a simple choice
If it’s true we would be before a very simple range: M1 as the general purpose chip and M1X as the most powerful chip for professionals. Then we would have the M2, M2X, M3, M3X … and maybe the Mac Pro would have one more chip in the lineup with a different name.
In addition, the source reaffirms that we will see the return of several missing ports with the new MacBook Pro, a reduction in their frames and this in the same way as what happened with the iMac. we will see the logo disappear from its face. In other words, the text mark “Macbook Pro“will no longer be read at the bottom center of the frame.
The high-end iMac may take a little longer to arrive, but Mark Gurman says we could see MacBook Pros with this chip in a matter of weeks.
