Apple is not planning an “extreme” Apple Silicon Mac Pro | Jobs Vox


San Francisco, December 19 (IANS): Tech giant Apple is reportedly not planning to include an “extreme” variant of the M2 chip in its Apple Silicon Mac Pro, and instead, the top-end Mac is said to feature the M2 Ultra chip.

The Mac Pro is the last model in the entire Mac range not to be powered by an Apple Silicon chip, according to AppleInsider.

While rumors have claimed that the tech giant is working on one for release next year, it might not be as powerful as previously thought.

The model was believed to use the ‘M2 Extreme’ chip, which is a more advanced version of the Ultra chip that combines two M2 Ultra chips on a single piece of silicon.

In theory, the chip could deliver 48 CPU cores and 152 GPU cores, but that doesn’t seem to be happening.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the company is holding back from shipping the Mac Pro with the extreme chip inside because of manufacturing issues.

Production of the chip has been halted due to concerns about its cost and complexity, so the expensive Mac Pro model has been scrapped, the report said.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that the Atech giant will launch its new MacBook Pro models and the latest iMac next year.
