New Mac Studio Likely to Be Introduced at WWDC

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has confirmed that Apple is nearing the introduction of what appears to be a refreshed Mac Studio model, indicating that it could be announced at WWDC next week.

On Twitter, Gurman explained that the new Mac in question is codenamed "J475." The current ‌Mac Studio‌ is codenamed "J375," suggesting that the new machine is indeed a next-generation ‌Mac Studio‌ model.

Earlier this week, Gurman reported that Apple is testing two desktop Macs equipped with the M2 Max and ‌‌M2‌‌ Ultra chips. The ‌M2‌ Max was released in January upon the launch of the latest 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, but the ‌M2‌ Ultra chip is new and would succeed the M1 Ultra chip that Apple uses in the ‌Mac Studio‌.

According to Gurman, the ‌M2‌ Max Mac in testing features eight high-performance cores, four efficiency cores, a 30-core GPU, and 96GB RAM. This is the same as the chip in the ‌M2‌ Max version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The ‌M2‌ Ultra Mac apparently has 16 high-performance cores and 8 efficiency cores, and a 60-core GPU, though prior information suggests that the ‌M2‌ Ultra could feature up to 76 GPU cores. Different configurations feature 64GB, 128GB, and 192GB of memory.

Apple is believed to be testing these new Macs just days ahead of the WWDC keynote, and Gurman says that he expects multiple Macs to be introduced at the event, including an all-new 15-inch MacBook Air model. Gurman has stopped short of saying the new ‌Mac Studio‌ will be introduced at WWDC, but it seems highly likely at this point.

Yeah, this is the correct rumour. Nevermind when he tweeted that the Mac Studio was going to be discontinued after 1 generation.

Apple Silicon on desktop makes no sense because performance per watt is of no concern.
Have you seen the cost of energy these days?

Typical Gurman. I guess his crystal ball was cracked when he said the Studio was only here for one generation.

I really hope they fix the whine.

If only to prevent the several hundred page long threads at MacRumors about whether or not people can hear the whine or not.
