The Apple MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 will be released early next month, as we previously reported, and we’re already hearing rumors about the presence of the new M1X chip. A prototype of the upcoming MacBook Pro, however, has been leaked online, revealing some incredible details.
Before the launch, someone connected his iPhone to a prototype of the new MacBook Pro, causing some information to leak online. In the screenshot, you can see the new MacBook Pro with M1X, and the name DVT-X88102C stands for Design Validation Testing (DVT), which is a prototyping stage before Production Validation Testing (PVT). The screenshot appears to be genuine because it includes coordinates for Apple Park.
Apparently the new MacBook Pro that will be released soon will be equipped with the M1X chip, this is demonstrated by this image of a DVT unit tested in Cupertino #Apple #AppleInternal #MacBookProM1X pic.twitter.com/jwRVXP4ezq— Majin Bu (@MajinBuOfficial) October 6, 2021
The screenshot confirms the presence of Apple’s new M1X chip, as well as 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM, which have yet to be announced separately. Apart from that, the screenshot reveals nothing else to Apple fans.
The new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 models, on the other hand, are expected to have up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. New I/O, such as HDMI and an SD card reader, could be included in the new MacBook Pros. It is recommended that the MagSafe charging port be kept. They might have a new flat design now, though.
The M1X and, as a result, the new MacBook lineup have been delayed by Apple, but it now appears that they will be announced on the same day as the new MacBook Pro lineup. The new M1X processor could have ten cores, with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores. Apple could release a new Mac Mini with the new M1X chip, or there could be two options in terms of GPU.
According to rumors, Apple is working on MacBook Pros with model numbers J314 and J316. J374 and J375 are two other models mentioned, which could be the new Mac Minis with M1X processors.
