Apple may be developing a 40 core processor, which will be the heart of the most powerful Mac Pro up to date.
According to Bloomberg, Apple may equip the future Mac Pro with a notably more powerful processor than before.
When the announcement was made that apple would be developing its own processor for Macs, the question was immediately raised: what kind of performance would the chip be capable of? And more importantly, how much of a performance boost will it give to Pro devices?
The answer came from the M1, which was first given to the 13-inch MacBook Pro alongside the MacBook Air and Mac mini. And this year, the iMac, which now uses the M1 chip, was introduced.
What remains to be seen is whether the M1 is strong enough to be fitted to the larger MacBook Pro or even the Mac Pro. According to Bloomberg, the answer is NO based on their leaked development information.
According to a new report, the company is working on a processor with 40 cores working simultaneously. This will be used in the Mac Pro, making it the most powerful computer Apple has to offer.
Bloomberg also speculates that the chip under development is codenamed Jade 2C-Die and Jade 4C-Die. The former could be a 20-core version, the latter a 40-core version, with 16 and 32 high-performance cores, respectively, and 4 and 8 power-efficient cores not only that the graphics processing unit (GPU) can be as large as a 128-core GPU, which is simply mindblowing.
Apple is reportedly planning to launch the new Mac Pro in 2022, so we'll have to wait until then to find out what processor it will come with.
