Apple’s transition to using custom silicon is expected to extend to its most powerful workstation, the Mac Professional. Previously, we have now reported that compared to the current model powered by an Intel chip, the next one is likely to be half the scale of the cheese grater. Still, it may not work with a chipset made up of zero, with a brand new report claiming that it could be a variant of the M1 Max discovered in the 2021 MacBook Professional family.
Apple can simply improve the M1 Max’s matrix measurement, allowing it to incorporate additional CPU and GPU cores into the Mac Professional.
It’s not uncommon for Apple to use the same chipset for many products, with a few tweaks here and there. In any case, we should always consider the M1 Professional as just another variant of the M1 Max but with a smaller matrix measurement. Likewise, a variant that could be found in the upcoming Mac Professional could feature a much higher matrix measurement, allowing Apple to add additional CPU and GPU cores, not to highlight the possibility of including the next amount of Unified RAM.
According to a report from The Data, the M1 Max variant discovered in the Mac Professional will work with at least two matrix elements, but unfortunately the variety of CPU and GPU cores was not discussed. Fortunately, we reported again that workstation models can run up to 40 processor cores. As for the rest of the breakdown, we’ve now offered it below.
- Mac Professional variant one – 20-core chipset (16 high-performance cores, 4 energy-efficient cores)
- Mac Professional variant two – 40-core chipset (32 high-performance cores, 8 power-efficient cores)
After all, the aforementioned information should be treated with a pinch of salt so far we have more stable information about the internal components of the Mac Professional. Still, for those who thought that the 2021 MacBook Professional with its 10-core processor and 32-core GPU offered unimaginable efficiency, we can guess you just have to see what the company is capable of presenting. Still, ahead of the Mac Professional unveiling, we’ll likely see the announcement of the iMac Professional, which is slated for launch in the first half of 2022.
As per the announced specs, the iMac Professional will likely be available in M1 Professional and M1 Max flavors, so we’re sticking around for this launch as well. As for the Mac Professional, are you excited about how it will perform when it’s probably a much smaller size? Share your ideas in the comments.
