Apple launched many new devices this year, such as iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Series, and AirPods Pro 2. However, the tech giant won’t stop launching more devices this year. Apple is expected to have another launch event in October. According to the rumors, the company will release a few devices like iPads and macMini. The sources say that Apple’s new M2 Extreme chip could come with options up to 48-core CPU, 160-core GPU, and 384GB of RAM.
Mac Pro with M2 Extreme chip
Some rumors claim that the new Mac Pro will have the M2 Pro, Max, Ultra, and Extreme chips. While there are no official announcements about the upcoming devices, some trustworthy sources have released rumors and expectations. For example, Apple is expected to launch the new MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. The sources claim that the new MacBook Pro models could come as early as later this month, but we need to wait for the official announcements.
According to the claims, the M2 Extreme chip will be available for Mac Pro. Also, the chip will have a 48-core CPU, 160-core GPU, and up to 384GB of RAM. If Apple launches a device like that, the company could be at the top of the processor industry. Here is the list of expected processor options:
- M2: 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, up to 24GB RAM
- M2 Pro (predicted): up to 10-core CPU, up to 20-core GPU, up to 48GB RAM
- M2 Max (predicted): up to 10-core CPU, 40-core GPU, up to 96GB RAM
- M2 Ultra (predicted): 24-core CPU, 80-core GPU, up to 192GB RAM
- M2 Extreme (predicted): 48-core CPU, 160-core GPU cores, up to 384GB RAM
Indeed, the tech giant would launch a new Mac Pro with M1, but it seems that Apple changed its mind, and users should wait for the M2 chips on Mac Pros. Bloomberg announced about the chips, “Codenamed Jade 2C-Die and Jade 4C-Die, a redesigned Mac Pro is planned to come in 20 or 40 computing core variations, made up of 16 high-performance or 32 high-performance cores and four or eight high-efficiency cores. The chips would also include either 64-core or 128-core options for graphics. The computing core counts top the 28 core maximum offered by today’s Intel Mac Pro chips, while the higher-end graphics chips would replace parts made by Advanced Micro Devices Inc.”
