If the prediction turns out to be accurate, it looks like the upgrade would be focused on graphics. The listing suggests that "M1X" could have a 16-core GPU [...]. It could feature 256 execution units, rather than the M1's 128
The M1 GPU has 1024 ALUs, 128 per GPU-core.
The M1X GPU may double that to 2048 ALUs.And CPU Monkey doesn't appear to have much credibility among benchmarking sites.
According to Money.UDN, supply chain sources say that trials are progressing smoothly. The sources estimate that TSMC's 3nm line is on course to produce 600,000 processors annually, or 50,000 per month, with mass production starting in 2022.
"According to the supply chain, TSMC’s 3nm and 4nm trial production preparations are progressing smoothly. Among them, 3nm is actively moving towards the goal of an annual production capacity of 600,000 pieces and a converted monthly production capacity of more than 50,000 pieces."
TSMC does not produce CPUs they produce wafers.
sweetheart777 said:Although I’m rooting for Apple silicon to debut with 12 Cores, eight cores and 16 threads on the Intel MacBook Pro will be hard to beat.
I'm pretty sure the Mac Book Pro 13 with Apple Silicon SoC will be able to match the performance of the fastest MacBook Pro 16 with an Intel CPU.robaba said:Seems like 3nm might be a starting prerequisite if Apple plans on a massive Pro chip like some are suggesting.
Two dies, 16+4 cores each, N5P node, uses TSMC's LIPinCon, and put together with CoWoS.
