A 48-core M2 processor might power new Apple Mac Pro
With the exception of the Mac Pro, which was discontinued in 2019, all Apple products now use Apple Silicon chips and are powered by Apple’s own processors.
It is widely speculated that the new Apple Mac Pro, which is set to debut sometime next year, would have the company’s latest and most powerful M2-series processors.
The forthcoming Apple Mac Pro, as reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, would reportedly be powered by Apple’s new and powerful in-house CPUs, codenamed M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme, which include 24 and 48 CPU cores, respectively. It can be paired with a graphics processing unit (GPU) with 76 or 152 cores and support for as much as 256 GB of RAM.
Reports also suggest Apple is testing a Mac Pro with a 24-core CPU, 76 GPU cores, and 192GB of RAM. The new macOS Ventura 13.3 operating system will be available to compatible machines starting today.
The new Apple Mac Pro is rumored to debut sometime in 2019, while specifics are currently unavailable. New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with the M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs, as well as a new Mac Mini with the M2 chip, will be released before the Mac Pro. A formal announcement of these three gadgets is anticipated for the following month, most likely the following month.
