Reliable Apple analyst Mark Gurman shared some details for the first set to devices expected to utilize Apple’s next-gen M2 chipsets. These are currently being tested with third-party apps and include new MacBook Air, several MacBook Pros, a new Mac Mini and a Mac Pro.
The Apple M1 family
The all-new MacBook Air featuring a standard M2 chipset at the helm with 8 CPU cores and 10 GPU cores. Gurman also mentions an entry-level MacBook Pro with an unspecified screen size with the same chipset specs as the M2 MacBook Air. The M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will power the next generation of 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros. M2 Max is said to feature 12 CPU cores and a whopping 38 GPU cores.
Apple is also working on a Mac Mini which will use the M2 Pro chip and a new Mac Pro said to feature the M2 Max chip as well as an even more powerful chip which may be called the M2 Ultra or M2 Extreme – a successor to the Mac Studio’s M1 Ultra chip.
With WWDC 2022 coming up in June we should hopefully hear more about Apple’s plans for the new M2 chipsets and devices.
