Apple launched many new devices in 2022, but the company is still expected to launch a few more devices. According to the rumors, Apple would launch new Macs along with the new iPads in October. However, the tech giant launched only the 10th Gen iPad, M2-powered iPad Pro, and Apple Pencil Hover in addition to a few software updates. Now, there are rumors about the new Apple Mac Pro with a 24-core CPU, 76-core GPU, and 192GB of Memory. Here are the details.
The Mac Pro may not launch until 2023
The manufacturer launched a lot of new devices in 2022 from smartphones to smartwatches. Apple launched the new iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Ultra, and more in the past months. While people are still talking about these devices, the company launched new iPads in October. The sources say that the tech giant could launch a new MacBook Pro and Mac Mini in the coming months. However, the Mac Pro with great specs may not launch until 2023.
Before the new Mac Pro, Apple could launch the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini. According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, these devices will get their power from M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. Gurman claims that new chips will be more powerful than their predecessor.
Gurman says about the new MacBook Pro models, “I’m told that these laptops will come in M2 Pro and M2 Max configurations. The M2 Max will have 12 CPU cores—made up of 8 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores—and 38 graphics cores. It will also continue to come with up to 64 gigabytes of memory. Those options will be available across both screen sizes.”
While the new MacBook Pro models and the new Mac mini come with the M2 chip, the Mac Pro will have more powerful specs, Gurman claims. Gurman reports, “My belief is that the Mac Pro will be offered with options for 24 and 48 CPU cores and 76 and 152 graphics cores—along with up to 256 gigabytes of memory.”
He also added, “In fact, I can share one configuration of the Mac Pro in active testing within Apple: 24 CPU cores (16 performance and 8 efficiency cores), 76 graphics cores, and 192 gigabytes of memory. That particular machine is running macOS Ventura 13.3. Ventura 13.0, the first version of the new macOS, is launching Monday.”
