Apple is about to launch its second self-developed processor

In 2020, Apple will launch an 8-core M1 chip with 5nm. As we all know, this is just the beginning, and Apple will improve its performance by increasing the number of cores, so that it can be used in a higher positioning product line. Recently, wccftech reported that new products using self-developed processors with higher performance may be launched in March.
According to previous reports, Apple’s MacBook with its new self-developed chip may be redesigned, with a 14.1-inch screen and a 12 core self-developed chip. The new self-developed processor with 12 cores is likely to be called m2, which will adopt eight performance cores and four efficiency cores. Little is known about other details other than the expected increase in the number of cores.

However, other sources said that in addition to the 14.1-inch screen, there will be a 16 inch screen version, and the 16 core self-developed chip with stronger performance will be used. At the same time, the newly designed cooling system will be more conducive to the performance of the new processor, which will make the redesign of the internal structure more meaningful. In addition, some industry reports have mentioned that the new chips will come in 2021, which will not only be used to update the product line of notebook computers, but also be used in Apple’s redesigned IMAC product line. It’s hard to say whether these chips are true or not.
Taking the performance of M1 as a reference, we can probably infer the performance of Apple’s new 12 core Mac. If it is used in the MacBook product line, in addition to the performance improvement, the additional core may also have an impact on the endurance. As for the result, it depends on the specific product after it is launched. Of course, Apple should also join other contingency measures. For people with higher performance requirements, they may be more looking forward to new products.
