The processor will receive 12 cores, 8 of which will be aimed at maximum performance, and another 4 at energy efficiency. The first owners of such a processor will be the updated 16-inch MacBook Pro and 24-inch iMac, which should cost from $ 1. Together with them, Apple will present the Magic Mouse in a new design. The announcement is expected in March.
A source familiar with the prototype of the new chip said, “If you think the M1 is fast, you haven’t seen the M1X yet.” So far, we can only guess how powerful the devices will turn out to be, but the M1 showed itself just fine in tests, including in emulation mode.
