Apple’s M2 chipset series family might include an Extreme variant

did not announce a Mac Pro at its recent “Peek Performance” presentation, and the Mac Studio is now the most powerful machine powered by Apple technology. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Mac Pro upgrade will have to wait until the firm releases the processor.

Extreme, to be sure. Officially, the M1 Ultra is the final chip in the M1 series. The Extreme model will be positioned above the Ultra and will be a beast with 48 CPU cores and up to 128 GPU cores, almost double the power available in the M1 Ultra. And that’s before the performance boost from the new architecture and process node is factored in.

Those are now up in the air. The Apple A14 processors’ CPU and GPU cores are used in the M1 series CPUs ( 12 series). The A15 or A16 designs and processes will be used in the M2 series, however, it is unclear which (the choice is dependent on TSMC’s manufacturing capacity and yields).

The M1 Ultra is made up of two M1 Max processors joined by a silicon interposer in Apple’s UltraFusion architecture. The is expected to be identical in , while the M2 Extreme is expected to feature four chips integrated into one.
