Apple is all set to start the mass production of the “M2” chipset ahead of its New MacBook Pro claims by the reports of Nikkei Asia. According to reports, it would take around three months for manufacturing of chipset and is expected to be available in July this year. And if happened accordingly, then Apple might use it in its upcoming MacBooks and iPads.
Apple M2 chipset expected specs
M2 chipset (or M1X depends on how company brands it) is expected to have the better processing power of CPU and GPU but M1 already has 8 core CPU and 8 core GPU. Apple claims that the M1 chip has 3.5x faster system performance, 6x faster graphics,15x faster machine learning, and 2x battery life. M1 chipset can support a maximum of two thunderbolt ports but this time it is expected to have more than two along with extra display output as M1 has only one.
Intel has Core i3 for lower-end Macs and Core i5 and Core i7 for higher-end. Now it would be interesting to see whether Apple is going to use M1 as the lower-end and M2 as the higher-end and can it compete with Intel. Also company is planning to introduce a new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro along with the larger 27-inch iMacs which could be 30-inch and can be powered by M1 or its successors M2.
