Tech News: Affirmation that 2021 MacBook Pro models will be equipped with the M1X chip; abandonment of the front logo..
Earlier this week, Gurman explained that the next 14 and 16 inches MacBook Pro models will feature a new Apple silicon chip that includes a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, 16 or 32-core GPU options, support for up to 64GB of memory, and support for additional Thunderbolt ports.
Gurman did not comment as the file MacBook The new Pro chip would be branded, but given what it went on to explain in the report, it seems highly unlikely that it is an “M1X”.
The crucial detail explained by Gurman was that the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and a high-end version of MacBook The air should also have a new one Apple silicon chip. This chip “will include the same number of processing cores as the M1 but will run faster. It will also see the number of graphics cores increase from seven or eight to nine or 10. “
This means that there are two of the new generation Apple silicon chip being worked on for i MacBook, with one for the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and high-end MacBook Air, and one for the redesigned 14 and 16 inches MacBook Pro models.
According to Gurman, the high-end chip for 14 and 16 inches MacBook The Pro models differ greatly from M1, that’s why it doesn’t seem fair that it’s an “M1X”. Gurman himself stated that “the new chips differ from the design of “M1”. “Even so, it would be reasonable to assume that Apple is the next-generation chip for MacBook Pro would be called “M1X” were it not for the other chip which is said to actually be based on M1.
The report is further challenged by speculation on the “M2” chip: it seems unlikely that this will happen Apple it would brand its high-end chip which is different from the design of “M1” is “M1X”, while another less powerful chip shines, a direct successor to “M1” and based on its design, “” M2 “.
