Leaker Says We Can Expect New MacBook Pro Notebooks At WWDC21 Event
Apple will hold its annual WWDC event in just two weeks and while it isn’t normally one where we see a ton of hardware being announced, it seems that this year could be the exception.
According to leaker Jon Prosser we can expect to see at least a new MacBook Pro of some sort be announced during the opening keynote.
While Prosser didn’t go into details about what that new MacBook Pro will be, we’ve been hearing rumors of a new high0end notebook of late. Both 13-inch and 16-inch versions are thought to be coming with new Apple M1X chips. A redesigned chassis is also thought to be incoming, too.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman recently reported that the new MacBook Pro will be a powerhouse, featuring up to 64GB of RAM and some impressive core counts – 10.
For the new MacBook Pros, Apple is planning two different chips, codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die: both include eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores for a total of 10, but will be offered in either 16 or 32 graphics core variations.
The high-performance cores kick in for more complex jobs, while the energy-efficient cores operate at slower speeds for more basic needs like web browsing, preserving battery life. The new chips differ from the M1’s design, which has four high-performance cores, four energy-efficient cores and eight graphics cores in the current 13-inch MacBook Pro.
