The M1 Pro and M1 Max might still have that new-chip smell, but that’s not stopping Apple from moving ahead with the next generation of its desktop processors. And according to a new report by The Information, the future is incredibly bright for Apple silicon.
Apple makes its current chips in partnership with TSMC, with the M1 series being based on a 5nm process with a single die. The next generation of chips—presumably the M2, M2 Pro, and M2 Max—will use an enhanced 5nm process, according to The Information. That likely refers to TSMC’s N4P node, which represents a small six percent die shrink and a 10 percent performance boost over the current node, according to reports.
