Digital Desk, San Francisco. Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is reportedly working on new Mac chips, possibly called M2. It is expected to hit the market by 2023. According to a report by The Information, next generation chipsets M2, M2 Pro and M2 Max will use the advanced 5nm process.
Apple and chip supplier TSMC are expected to launch production of 3nm chips in 2023 with the codenames Ibiza, Lobos and Palma for use in iPhones and Max.
These 3nm Mac chips are thought to be capable of up to 40 CPU cores which will be a major upgrade over the 10-core design used for the M1 Pro and M1 Max. The chip will include two dies, which will allow more cores to be used and will still be an upgrade to the current generation.
