The new M1 chips for Apple’s Mac “might embarrass Intel,” said Mashable.
Processor M1 of Apple is rated for outstanding performance, energy saving compared to versions using Intel CPUs. According to Bloomberg , Apple is working on a 32-core processor, giving the performance far ahead of the M1 chip.
It’s not surprising that Apple is researching the chip itself. It is worth mentioning that Apple’s chip will outperform the Intel CPUs on other laptops.
The M1 processor, based on the ARM architecture, brought to the Mac mini, MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro are all aimed at mainstream users. IMac, iMac Pro and Mac Pro users are waiting for a version of the M-series for them.
To serve professional users, Apple chips need more cores. In addition to the 32-core chip, rumors suggest that Apple is working on a chip with 16 high-performance cores and 4 energy-saving cores, but the first version introduced will have only 12 high-performance cores activated.
According to the plan, these chip models will be available on the MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Pro lines expected to be released next fall.
Apple is also testing graphics processing chips with 16, 32, 64 and 128 cores for the high-end segment. These chips are expected to arrive in late 2021 or early 2022, many times faster than AMD or NVIDIA GPUs.
There is no information about how much RAM these chips can support. Apple’s M1 line of chips only stops at 16 GB, this number needs to be improved for more high-end chips.
Facing the teasing move by the launch of the M1, 2021 processor line is expected to be an exciting and desirable year for the tech world and Apple product lovers.
