Apple Readies new Crop of Pro Mac using Apple M1/M2 Chip Technology

UPDATE June 16: looks like we’ll have to wait quite a bit longer, perhaps even 2022, at least for laptops.

...

Bloomberg is reporting that Apple is readying a new crop of improved and higher-end Macs based on the Apple M1 CPU technology. Highlights, according to Bloomberg:

  • Mac Pro M1 with 16 or 32 high performance cores (and 4 or 8 energy-saver cores), and 64 or 128 GPU cores.
  • For the MacBook Pro lineup, 8 performance cores (double the current number) and 2 energy efficient cores.
  • Up to 64GB memory in the pro laptops.
  • Improved Neural Engine.
  • 4 Thunderbolt/USB-C ports on the pro models and a rumored new Mac mini.

If this pans out as claimed, it looks like even the fastest souped-up PC will be left in the dust. And my my 2019 Mac Pro 28-core looks to be a dinosaur this year in terms of performance.

OWC has outstanding peripherals for current Macs and these new ones. See my various OWC wishlists for storage, SSD, etc.

Apple Readies MacBook Pro, MacBook Air Revamps:

...The overhaul encompasses a broad range of Macs, including Apple’s higher-end laptop, the MacBook Pro; the laptop aimed at the mass market, the MacBook Air; and its desktop computers, the Mac Pro, iMac and Mac mini, according to people familiar with the matter.

Redesigned MacBook Pros are expected to debut as soon as early this summer, said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss an internal matter, followed by a revamped MacBook Air, a new low-end MacBook Pro and an all-new Mac Pro workstation. The company is also working on a higher-end Mac mini desktop and larger iMac. The machines will feature processors designed in-house that will greatly outpace the performance and capabilities of the current M1 chips, the people said.

...Codenamed Jade 2C-Die and Jade 4C-Die, a redesigned Mac Pro is planned to come in 20 or 40 computing core variations, made up of 16 high-performance or 32 high-performance cores and four or eight high-efficiency cores. The chips would also include either 64 core or 128 core options for graphics. The computing core counts top the 28 core maximum offered by today’s Intel Mac Pro chips, while the higher-end graphics chips would replace parts now made by Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

...

MPG: the only thing that concerns me is the 64GB memory thing, but maybe an iMac or Mac Pro will offer 128GB or more.
