It is no surprise that the next generation of Apple MacBooks will feature the M2 chip family. Mark Gurman, a reliable analyst, has now shared even more details about the first devices that will include M2 chips.
According to his report, these chips are currently being tested with third-party apps on the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro computers.
According to Gurman, the upcoming MacBook Air will use the standard M2 chip, which will have 8 CPU cores and 10 GPU cores, up from the M1’s eight-core GPU. The M2 MacBook Air’s chipset will be used in the basic MacBook Pro with unspecified screen size.
The 14′′ and 16′′ MacBook Pros, on the other hand, will receive the higher-end M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. There is no word on the CPU/GPU details for the M2 Pro, but the M2 Max is expected to have a 12-core CPU paired with a mind-boggling 38-core GPU.
Apple is also working on a Mac Mini and a Mac Pro, which will feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max SoCs. The Mac Pro will get an even more powerful variant with the beastly M2 Ultra chip or the M2 Extreme, which will combine two M2 Ultra chips.
According to rumors, we will learn more about Apple’s upcoming M2 hardware at the WWDC event in June.
