The M2 chip reveal could be imminent and find a home in multiple Macs
The next big Apple event will take place tomorrow, March 8, and there’s good reason to think we may see the launch of some new Apple Silicon. That looks all the more likely now, given reports that Apple is currently testing its new M2 chips ahead of the event.
That’s according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, in his ‘Power on’ newsletter. Gurman claims that a “developer source” has informed him that Apple is testing a new chip at the moment. What’s more, this chip has an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU and has been tested on various unreleased macOS updates running on multiple Mac machines.
According to Gurman’s source, this new chip has four efficient CPU cores and four high-performance cores. Gurman points out that he already reported those specs for the M2 last year, suggesting this is the M2 and not something else entirely — like the M1 Super Max Pro or something like that.
Rumour is that the M2 chip is going to offer better
performance than the M1, but will supposedly use
Less power in the process. If that sounds familiar,
it’s because that’s exactly what the original M1
Chip offered when it debuted in late 2020.
Compared to older Macs running Intel chips, the M1 was a huge improvement, offering more computing power with a significantly longer battery life.
However, the M2 is supposed to be less powerful
Then both the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. Both
those chips are billed as specialist silicon,
designed for power users, rather than the casual
Everyday MacBook owner.
The chip will reportedly be smaller, though, at
Am compared to the M1 range’s 5nm, and it’s
likely we’ll see Pro and Max versions of the M2
Within the next 12-18 months or so.
So, where can we expect to see the M2? So far
we’ve heard rumours that a new MacBook Pro
2022 and a refreshed MacBook Air 2022 maybe
Coming with the M2 chip.
The speculation generally suggests these Macs
won’t be launching sometime later this year possibly the fall-but considering tomorrow’s
Apple event is billed as “Peak Performance,” it’s
also, possible one or both of them might be
unveiled in a blaze of glory in just over a day’s
Time. Either way, we won’t have to wait long to
