Apple is preparing for the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2021. At the developer event, the company will reveal the next version of its software. Apple is also expected to release a new MacBook Pro with a faster processor codenamed M1X. According to rumors, this upgraded chip will have a 16 or 32 core integrated GPU. According to YouTuber Dave2D, this new chip may be able to match the performance of the Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU. Based on the chip’s theoretical performance in GFXBench 5.0 Aztec, the YouTuber made the prediction. The M1X chip is said to be capable of delivering the same number of frames per second as a laptop with an RTX 3070 GPU.
Dave2D also predicts that the 16-inch Pro model will have a built-in 32-core GPU. The chip would be significantly larger than the M1, which has eight cores and would require more thermal management space. He also predicts that the new Apple silicon will be even more energy-efficient than any other Windows laptop with comparable performance. According to a GFXBench 5.0 Aztec chart shared by the YouTuber, the RTX 3070 would require 90W of power to deliver 170 frames, compared to 40W on the Pro MacBooks.
These are some educated guesses and speculations based on a number of reports that have surfaced on the internet. We recommend that our readers wait for the official launch and reviews to learn more. The launch of Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro has yet to be confirmed. However, reports on the internet claim that the MacBook will be unveiled at the WWDC in 2021. According to some reports, these laptops will be available for purchase early next year.
Apple is expected to release two different chips for its new Pro models. The codenames for these are Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. Eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores will be found on both chips. The GPU will be the deciding factor. According to the report, both models will have 16 or 32 GPU cores. The M1 chip, on the other hand, had four performance cores and four efficiency cores. It has eight graphics cores as well. In addition, the new chip will support up to 64GB of RAM, compared to 16GB on the current M1 chip.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new Pro MacBooks will be available in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes. Magnetic charging and a redesigned chassis will be included in the models. Both models will have multiple ports, including an HDMI port and an SD card slot.
