As we all know Apple is a renowned multinational American technology company with its headquarter based in California, that is known for designs, develops and sells consumer electronics, computer software, it’s accessories and many other online services. Apple has a great leap when it comes to introducing its own line of SoC with the Apple M1 chipset. The company’s latest silicon chipset currently powers the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops.
Reportedly, Apple is now working to expand its portfolio and planning to launch a new Apple Silicon 12 core chip for Macbooks that will be much more advanced and powerful than the currently available 5nm M1 chip. The new chipset is reported to be uncovered in March 2021.
The news came from a tweet by LeaksApplePro who has reason to believe that the next Apple silicon 12-core chip will launch in March with 12 cores. The tweet does not reveal any details, but renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has previously reported that Apple might introduce redesigned MacBook Pro models with 14.1 and 16-inch screen display sizes. The laptops are expected to arrive in the second quarter of 2021. The 14.1-inch variant may be powered by Apple Silicon 12-core chip, whereas the 16-inch model might come with a 16-core chip. The 16-inch MacBook Pro would be bigger than the other with more space for a cooling solution.
Rumors have said that the 12-core chip would likely to be divided into 8 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. However, we expect to hear more information about the upcoming Apple Silicon 12 core chip as Q1 comes to an end.
