    So different silicon in different Macs.
    i don’t think a $1000 13” Air user will get the same chip as a $4000 16” MBP user.
    You’re thinking like intel, try instead to think like Apple.

    Look at the price of the iPhone SE and the price of the 11 pro max. Then, look at the SOC in each. Are you still so confident?
    So you think the cheapest MBA and most expensive Mac Pro will have the same CPU performance and if they don’t do this they’re thinking just like Intel?

    That doesn’t compute for me.

    Apple had said they have designed a scalable architecture and I expect a complete family of chips, just as Apple has been designing many chips for various uses for a decade.


    I don't think @Blastdoor was suggesting that Mac Pro and MacBook Air would have the same SoC. He was suggesting that MBA and MBP will have the same SoC, since they are part of the same lineup of products with similar power profile - i,e, laptops in this case. I think that is quite possible.


    Mac Pro will obviously have a separate high power SoC.

    That wasn’t his rebuttal tp the statement,“different silicon in different Macs” and to your comment, the MBA and MBP are not a similar power profile are are not part of he same lineup. Being a notebook computer does mean they are equal, just as all “PCs” are not equal. Apple has been using fairly similar chips in their iPhones because their size and power needs are within a very narrow window, but even those SoCs are not identical, so to expect all the Macs (or even all the notebook Macs) to use the same SoC sounds ridiculous.
