According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is working on its various M1 successors with up to 32 cores. They could be launched early next year or by 2022. Its M1 chipset replaces Intel’s chipsets in MacBook, which has 8 CPU cores.
Apple’s strategy is to use its own chipsets in all of its MacBook, thereby completely phasing out Intel from its ecosystem. The next-generation chipsets are said to have 16 performance cores and four efficiency cores! But depending on fabrication results, Apple may very well launch models with 8 or 12 performance cores at first.
Apple’s most powerful MacBook Pro can be configured up to 28 cores. It means that if Apple is planning to replace e the Intel Xeon W chips with its own offering, then the new chips must be potent.
The new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini is equipped with the M1 chip, a CPU with four high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. Even though not much is known, Apple could launch these new chips alongside its new MiniLED displays and MacBooks.
Moreover, Bloomberg adds that Intel’s shares drop by 1.7% with these new chipsets’ news.
