Mass production of the Apple M1 successor allegedly began this month Nikki. We are talking about Khalifa, but maybe we should talk more about an older brother designed for more powerful machines. As usual, TSMC will be responsible. For this, the Founder will use his latest engraving process, “5nm plus”, an improved version of the 5nm used in the M1 and A14.
New system-on-a-chip shipments could begin in July, which ties in with previous rumors indicating the launch of the new MacBook Pro. Not before the second semester.
Resources Nikki The indication that this chip “M1X” or “M2” or something else (we don’t know its name yet) is for new laptops, but also for other Macs and even others Apple devices. For a Mac, we’re obviously thinking of iMac is bigger potential. For another Apple device, we are putting a coin Augmented / Virtual Reality Headset.
For now, the transition to an Apple Silicon architecture is going like a watch. Tim Cook announced in a final keynote that Mac M1s already account for the majority of Mac sales.
