The new MacBook Pro models could be arriving before a new MacBook Air, low-end MacBook Pro (a refresh of the current model with M1) and a Mac Pro desktop.
Latest reports suggest that Apple will launch these laptops with a new in-house chip that "greatly outpaces the performance and capabilities" of the M1. About the processors, it will come in two types called Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. Both chips have eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficiency cores for a total of 10 compute cores; one flavours 16 graphics cores while another variant will have 32 GPU cores.
Last year at the M1 launch, Apple explained the M1 performance cores are used for intensive tasks like photo and video editing, 3D rendering and engineering tasks. The energy-efficiency cores take care of everyday jobs, like web browsing or streaming music, without eating up as much energy.
The chip will use a similar volume of cores (eight CPU, seven GPU) as the current one but with faster performance. The graphics cores will go from either seven or eight to nine or 10 in the refresh edition.
