Professionals, especially creative professionals, love the MacBook Pro and based on predictions by Mark Gurman, they are going to love it even more.
Gurman in his Bloomberg Power On newsletter said that Apple will launch new MacBooks with M1X chips this year, in October.
First announced in November 2020, the M1 is Apple’s homemade silicone for the Mac. The chip turned a lot of heads and convinced a lot of people that this is not just a phase for Apple. They are really in it to win it.
The M1 chip can be found in current-generation Macs and even iPads.
The M1X chip is the next iteration and it is expected to be available in a new range of Macbook Pros and later, a higher-end Mac mini.
People are excited about this new chip because it has been described as the more “graphics-intense and professional-focused” chip.
It is thought that Apple is developing two variations of the M1X. Gurman writes that both feature a 10-core CPU consisting of eight high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores.
The difference in the versions will be in the GPU, as there are apparently variants with 16 graphics cores and 32 cores.
Gurman previously predicted that we can expect a 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro coming up soon. There will be models without touch bars and they will have mini LED displays and Magsafe charging.
