Future Mac Pros aim to replace Intel processors with Apple Silicon

Despite the apparent good acceptance of Apple Silicon processors in MacBook laptops, the company’s professional-oriented benchmark desktop, the macprois still using Intel processors, although that could change soon according to the latest rumors that are circulating.

It does not take a genius to imagine that the renewal of the Mac Pro has many options to go through the use of Apple’s own processors based on the ARM architecture, which have already shown that they are capable of offering, at least at the level of laptops , professional performance with autonomy that has become the envy of the competition. Let’s not forget the Mac Mini, which also uses Apple Silicon.

Returning to the subject, the latest rumors spread by Bloomberg indicate that there could be two variants of the next generation of the Mac Pro that would be marketed next year. One would have a SoC Apple M2 Ultra with 16 high-performance cores, 8 efficient cores, 76 graphics processing cores, and 192GB of RAMwhile the second variant would have a Apple M2 Extreme with a total of 48 cores (core distribution not specified), 152 cores for graphics processing and 256GB of RAM. The former is known to run, at least for now, macOS Ventura 13.3.

It is important to keep in mind that Mac Pros are geared primarily towards professional environments and are far from cheap, aspects that will almost certainly continue with the alleged jump to Apple Silicon. In spite of everything, the Cupertino giant is interested in selling, so anyone who goes through the box will be able to get a unit of those desktop computers.

It seems that Apple is determined to give Intel the final kick to bet on its own technology, which for now looks very good, especially seeing that the x86 spectrum, at least this year, has preferred to use “brute force” neglecting a little consumption and temperatures. What’s more, Apple Silicon is so convincing that even Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, has decided to use one of these teams even though support for them is still extremely green.
