M1X MacBook Pro 14 with immense performance and price on the cards


@dylandkt has come up with yet another piece of information about the 2021 Apple MacBook Pro laptops. The analyst recently stated that both the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16, which is “coming this fall”, will give the same level of performance thanks to the existence of the same processor – the Apple M1X. The leaker applauds the noticeable fact that being in a smaller form doesn’t mean the M1X MacBook Pro 14 will suffer regarding performance levels. However, this unsurprisingly will come at a cost.


The telling words at the end of the relevant tweet are “expect a notable increase in price for the 14 inches over the 13 incheseseses”. Special attention should be paid to the word “notable” here, as this implies it will be a considerable amount more that future M1X MacBook Pro 14 buyers will have to shell out. The current 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple M1 chip costs from US$1,299, and contemplating the redesign the 2021 MacBook Pro is inclined to get, it’s understandable there will be a significant price hike included.


For instance, mini-LED panels should be on board and then there’s that Apple M1X chip. The MacBook Pro 13 has an M1 SoC with an 8-core CPU part and 8-core GPU part; the M1X coming with the MacBook Pro 14 is rumoured to have a 10-core CPU part and a 16-core GPU part, while Apple Silicon with a 32-core GPU is allegedly reserved solely for the MacBook Pro 16. Huge accomplishment boosts can be anticipated
