Apple’s M1 Chip is one of the most highly rated silicon of recent times. We have been time and again impressed by the performance of the company’s silicon. There have been many discussions online regarding the successor of the silicon.
And in recent news, an alleged “leak” from a spurious source claimed to give some early benchmark data for the M1X. First things first, the Cupertino-based giant has not yet confirmed an “M1X” name, with observers plumping for the name based on the firm’s usage of “X” as a suffix to some A-series chips.
The leak claims that the new silicon from Apple, the Apple M2 processor, will appear around late 2022 and will be configured with 16 cores made up of 12 performance cores and four efficiency cores. If the leaks are to be believed, then the new silicon will be four times faster than M1.
The recent chip we have seen is the 8-core M1 silicon, and the leak suggests that by the end of 2022, there will be a 16-core M2. It’s a reasonable estimation, but that is only what it is for now.
But there also some speculations going around stating that the superfast 16-core Apple chip could end up being the M2X, considering the timeline. According to sources, since Apple’s M1 was released in November 2020, thus an M1X could turn up in a MacBook Pro by the end of the second quarter this year.
Apple’s silicon has already crushed Intel and AMD’s most high-end offerings and shapes into a worthy rival for the two.
