M1X is to be the successor for Apple's M1 chipset?

The M1 chipset from Apple is the company’s first processor under the Apple Silicon lineup which is based on ARM architecture. The chip is powering three Mac devices which are kicking off the transition from Intel to its chipsets.

Apple is expected to launched new Apple Silicon chipset and a few other Mac devices. While Apple has not yet officially revealed anything, a new leak seems to have spilt the beans of the upcoming chipset.

The successor of the Apple M1 has reportedly been spotted online on a benchmarking platform. However, it seems that the specifications of the chipsets are more of protection rather than results.

As per the report, the chipset, which is named “M1X”, will come with a 12-core CPU, an upgrade over the M1’s eight-core CPU. The internal GPU is also expected to have 16 cores instead of an 8-core GPU in M1. It is expected to have been clocked at 3.2GHz and will be based on a 5nm process, just likes its predecessor.

The benchmark outcomes that emerged on CPU Monkey have indicated “pre-sample” specifications of the “M1X” chipset.

The new Apple Silicon chipset is expected to power the upcoming 14-inch MacBook Pro, a 16-inch MacBook Pro, and 27-inch iMac devices. Apple is also reportedly working on other chips with 16-core and 32-core graphics processing.
