According to Nikkei, Apple’s supplier TSMC has begun the production of the rumored M2 or M1x silicon chip, and we can expect them in Apple’s devices in the late second half of the year.
It is expected that the M2 this year will be a 4nm chip. Yes you read it right, 4nm. The new chip will be launched with the same integrated CPU, GPU and neural engine but is expected to have a more efficient unified ram architecture than last year’s 8 core.
It is also anticipated to resolve last year’s M1 limitations by enhancing a greater thunderbolt port support and at least two external display supports with better battery life.
Apple is also reportedly working on the 14 and 16-inch Mac-book Pro models with a new chassis design, featuring a mag safe, SD card reader and an HDMI port support.
With the launch of the new iPad pro 2021 model with M1 processors and iMac M1 Apple has opend the stage to infinite possibilities for itself and it’s consumers.
It is going to be exciting to see what Apple has to offer this year with it’s new silicon lineup.
