TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Apple M1 chip was designed by the tech giant so it can replace Intel processors on certain Mac models. Built by TSMC using a 5nm process node, the M1 has 16 billion transistors compared to the 11.8 billion found inside every A14 Bionic chipset.
The M1X and M2 can both be equipped with 10 CPU cores. M1 brings 4 high-performance cores and 4 energy-efficient cores for a total of 8 cores. As for the GPU cores, there is speculation that the GPU for the M1X will be equipped with as many as 32 cores. The M2 is not expected to have as many GPU cores as the M1X.
We’ll see the M2 released next year. Whether Apple will use it for a possible 2022 iPad Pro model is unknown at this time. The M1 chip powers the 2021 iPad Pro tablet which gives users at least one compelling reason why the iPad Pro could be their next computer.
In April, there was speculation that the M2 had already started mass production and the chip would start shipping in July. The same rumor calls for Apple to use the M1 to power future iPad models.
Apple has kept its lips shut as far as the specs for the M1X and M2 are concerned. And the new iPhone 13 series which is roughly four weeks away from launching will be powered by the A15 Bionic which will be produced by TSMC using an upgraded 5nm process node.
Again, the M2 could be the first 4nm chipset to be used in Apple devices next year, while the iPhone 14 line will feature the A16 Bionic manufactured using a 3nm process node.
