Highlights on the latest technological advances and innovations.
The CPU Monkey portal, which specializes in processor reviews, has shared the possible characteristics of Apple’s new chip for Mac, dubbed the M1X, which is expected to be presented this year.
The advanced processor is likely to feature 12 3.2 GHz cores, including eight high-performance cores, called Firestorm, and four cores, baptized as Icestorm and focused on energy efficiency. For comparison, the original M1 chip has only eight cores.
The M1X will also have a graphics processing unit (GPU) 16-core with 256 execution units, which means that it could offer up to twice the graphics performance compared to the M1, which features an 8-core GPU and 128 execution units. In addition, it will have a maximum operating memory of 32 GB and a thermal design power of up to 35 W.
The company itself still has not commented on the rumors, so so far we only have to wait for the official launch of the new chip.
