A fresh report from Bloomberg claims that Apple will release its first Mac powered by an ARM processor by 2021. The report claims that Apple is working on three Mac processors as part of its Kalamata project, which will be based on the A14 chip that will be powering the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup.
Furthermore, Bloomberg also reported that at least one of these processors will apparently be much faster than the A-series chips in the iPhone and iPad. Similar to the A14 chip, the Mac processors are expected to be manufactured by TSMC based on its 5nm fabrication process.
For a long time, Apple has been rumored to be developing its own in-house ARM processors to replace the Intel chips it currently uses in its Macs. Most of the rumors we have heard claims that Apple will launch its ARM-powered Mac in 2020 or 2021. However, a recent report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that suggested an ARM Mac could come in 2021 can be delayed due to the ongoing pandemic across the world that highly affected the supply chain.
The report claims that Apple’s first Mac processors will have 12 cores, including eight high-performance cores and at least four energy-efficient cores. Apart from this, the company is already designing a second generation of Mac processors based on the A15 chip. There are rumors that Apple is working on Mac processors with more than 12 cores for further in the future.
Publisher’s report claims that the first ARM-based Mac will be a notebook, but on the other hand, Kuo expects at least one Mac desktop with an Apple processor next year too. Well, these are still unclear facts which are yet to be confirmed by the company. However, we believe to hear more about them as we are heading towards 2021.
