Apple’s M2 SoC was officially unveiled at WWDC 2022. Following this announcement, we are looking forward to more powerful chipsets which will be able to boast higher GPU and CPU core counts. You guessed it right, we are talking about the M2 Pro and the M2 Max. According to one of the recent reports, TSMC is going to start producing them this year using its latest 3nm technology.
Switching from the 4nm technology to 3nm is going to be very challenging for TSMC and analyst Jeff Pu says that it is already beginning mass production this year for Apple’s M2 Pro and M2 Max. even if this production starts this year as planned and goes on without any delays, we will still not see the Apple silicon launch this year.
The resigned MacBook Pro family in 2023 would likely be the first candidate to be powered by the M2 Pro and M2 Max. currently, the MacBook Pro series are powered by the M1 Pro and M1 Max and once it shifts to the M2 Pro and M2 Max, there will be a jump in the CPU and GPU cores as well. The M1 Max has the maximum potential to reach a 10-core CPU and 32-core configuration whereas the M2 Max will feature up to a 12-core GPU and 38-core GPU.
