Redesigned MacBook Pro Models With 10-Core Apple Silicon Chip Said to Launch as Early as This Summer

Apple plans to launch new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with an improved iteration of the M1 chip as early as this summer, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The new chip is said to include a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, with 16-core or 32-core GPU options.

Gurman said the next-generation Apple silicon chip will also support up to 64GB of memory compared to the current maximum of 16GB. This would be in line with the current Intel-based 16-inch MacBook Pro, which is available with up to 64GB of RAM. The new chip is also said to support additional Thunderbolt ports for expanded connectivity.

As mentioned in his previous reporting, Gurman said the new MacBook Pro models will feature a redesigned chassis with the return of more ports, including an HDMI port, SD card slot, and a MagSafe magnetic charging cable.

Gurman said Apple is also working on a revamped MacBook Air for as early as the end of the year, in addition to an all-new Mac Pro, a higher-end Mac mini with four Thunderbolt ports, and a replacement for the Intel-based 27-inch iMac.

I was hoping for at least 75 cores, with 300 GPU cores. *sigh* Apple sure have lost the plot.

Different rumors every hour. First the 'books are delayed until early next year.
Then they will be out before year's end but severely limited.
Now they could arrive in summer.

It's save to say - we just don't know. ;)

I wish Apple would bring the larger screen size to the consumer product line. I would love to have a 16 inch MacBook Air equivalent, I’m not really a pro so I don’t need 10 cores and all that but a bigger screen at less than $1500 would be nice.

I was hoping for 16 cores.
M2 or M1x only 2 more cores than the 8 in the M1?
If they are not the same cores as M1, 10 may be a big deal.
