Rumors of a new version of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros have been swirling over the past few months, but there has been no real news. A report from Taiwan’s “Business Times” said that Apple has placed an order with chip maker TSMC to purchase the next-generation M2 processor for the new MacBook Pro.
“Business Times” pointed out that the next-generation M2 processor will use TSMC’s 3nm process technology. The internal development codes are Rhodes Chop and Rhodes 1C, and they will be named M2 Pro and M2 Max when they are officially launched. It is reported that the M2 Pro will be equipped with a 10-core CPU and a 20-core GPU, and the M2 Max will be equipped with a 12-core CPU and a 38-core GPU. Unfortunately, the report did not further disclose the release date of the MacBook using the new processor.
A few days ago, there are rumors that Apple is developing more powerful M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme at the same time. The latter is testing two versions, which are 24-core CPU with 76-core GPU and 48-core CPU and 152-core GPU. If the rumor is true, I believe the performance will be improved. Very powerful and an industry leading processor.
