Apple is working on a new MacBook Pro powered by the previously unreleased Apple M3 Max chip. Now the first details about the upcoming flagship processor are in the room. Experts speak of 16 processor cores and 40 GPU processing units.
Upto 40 GPU Cores
As Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman reports, the first logs from third-party developers are said to have confirmed the new Apple M3 Max – at least one variant of it. Installed in a MacBook Pro (model number J514), there is talk of 16 GPU and 40 GPU cores.
The performance compared to the current Apple M2 Max should increase significantly, as the manufacturer continues to install four efficiency cores, but increases the performance cores from eight to twelve. In addition, a new configuration of the MacBook Pro with 48 GB of RAM seems to be tested internally.
In comparison: The Apple M2 Max is currently delivered with 12 CPU and 38 GPU cores and can be combined with either 32, 64, or 96 GB of RAM. It remains to be seen whether the increase in the performance cores will also be accompanied by a 50 percent increase in performance in the new Apple M3 Max.
The leap in performance could be even greater
Gurman also envisages that Apple may be working on several variants of the M3 Max and that the currently leaked model does not necessarily represent the stronger model of the new chip. However, it may be a few months before this question can be answered.
According to experts, Apple will not update its MacBook Pro line-up until next year, 2024. Before that, the Apple M3 should be used in a Basic and Pro version in other Mac systems. Updates for the Mac Mini, iMac, and MacBook Air are conceivable from October this year.
In September, the Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro will be the focus for the time being. The latter has one thing in common with the Apple M3 (Max) with the new A17 Bionic chip. Both are produced using the new 3nm process, which puts the company one step ahead of the competition.
