Bloomberg: Apple’s First ARM Mac to Launch by 2021 With 12-Core Processor
In line with a timeframe shared by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo final month, Bloomberg immediately stories that Apple is planning to launch not less than one Mac with its personal custom-designed ARM-based processor by 2021.
The report claims that Apple is growing three Mac processors primarily based on the A14 chip in upcoming iPhone 12 fashions. At least certainly one of these processors will apparently be a lot sooner than the A-series chips within the iPhone and iPad. Like the A14 chip, the Mac processors are anticipated to be manufactured by TSMC primarily based on its 5nm course of.
Apple’s first Mac processors could have 12 cores, together with eight high-performance cores and not less than 4 energy-efficient cores, in accordance to the report. Apple is claimed to be exploring Mac processors with greater than 12 cores for additional sooner or later, with the corporate already designing a second technology of Mac processors primarily based on the A15 chip.
The first ARM-based Mac is probably going to be a pocket book, however analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects not less than one Mac desktop with an Apple processor subsequent 12 months too.
