—Updated CPU specs: both will be 10-core CPUs packing “eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores,” according to Bloomberg.
—UpdatedGPU specs: options for the GPU will be 16-core or 32-core, according to the report. This means more power for high-end tasks such as video editing.
—Compared to current M1: The current M1 in the MacBook Pro 13 has an 8-core CPU, with 4 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores and an 8-core GPU.
—RAM: support for up to 64GB of RAM. The M1 MBP 13 maxes out at 16GB.
—Physical MacBook design changes: More energy-efficient processors will allow Apple to use more extreme thin-and-light chassis designs as it shrinks the overall size of a MacBook. A radical example of thinness is expected with next MacBook Air, while the next mainstream MacBook Pro is expected to squeeze a 14-inch display into roughly a 13-inch* chassis.
