Apple is one of the leading companies due to its high-quality and reliable products. With its headquarters located in Cupertino California, Apple releases numerous products such as iPhones, iPods, iPads, and MacBook. Other than these products, Apple also focuses on selling other electronics, online services, and computer software.
It is a multinational company and the reason behind its worldwide fame is its consistent quality. The loyal Apple customers wait for the launch of new products every year and are delighted by the specifications every time. One of the much-talked-about products is Apple’s Next-Gen Mac Processor. Let us see what differentiates it from all the other processors?
Apple’s Next-Gen ‘M2’ Mac Processor Specifications
Apple’s Next-Gen ‘M2’ Mac Processors are expected to be a part of the MacBook computers just like the M1 Apple Silicon Chip. Cutting-edge technology would be used by fab giant TSMC which will produce the M2 processors for the customers.
The multinational company intends to use its own processors rather than the previously used Intel-designed processors as relying on your products makes a brand much more stable than outsourcing products. Apple launched some of its products in the previous week and it impressed the customers to a high extent. The launched products were the iPad Pro Lineup and a redesigned version of the 24-inch iMac.
However, these products had the same old processing unit known as the M1 processors which are used in other Mac products as well. The M1 processors are quite impressive as they have an 8-core CPU and GPU, unified memory structure, and a 16-core neural engine as well but the M2 processor must be a much-enhanced version of it.
It is believed that Apple’s Next-Gen ‘M2’ Mac Processors would be launched in MacBook and will give it an improved efficiency as Apple’s Research and Development department is working to the best of its abilities to build a strong processor base for itself. When Apple switched to its own processor by producing M1, the customers were ecstatic as the new processor was much faster and smaller than the intel and AMD processors.
Just when the customers were appreciating these faster processing units, Apple was working to launch its successor M2. It is reported that M2 will contain a 5-nano meter plus design which will result in an improved version of M1’s 5-nano meter design. As the M2 processors will be launched in MacBook, Apple will reportedly release a 14-inch new MacBook this year and the redesigned MacBook will have the M2 processor as well.
Other than this, it is believed that initially, M2 processors would be a part of the MacBook but soon Apple will shift to its other products too as now Apple wants to rely on its processors rather than the previously used Intel processors. It is also expected that Apple will launch a thinner MacBook Air and it might have the M2 processor as well. So, most of the MacBooks launched this year might contain the faster and much better M2 chip.
Expected Release Date
It is stated that Apple is currently working on M2 chips and has now entered the mass production stage. The forthcoming products which will be launched in July might have the M2 chips and they will be ready by then.
Now that we are well-aware of M1’s high speed, reliability, and efficiency, the launch of the successor M2 has surely made everyone excited as we can only imagine how powerful and competent it will be. Apple seems to be really close to meeting its goal of using its own processors as the M1 chip was a hit and it is all set to launch M2 in July.
