The Apple Vision Pro is now sold as a headset with two chipsets: the M2, which is already used in a few Macs, and the brand-new R1. While we wait for the official introduction of the AR headset in 2024 to learn more about the R1, there is a Twitter discussion going on regarding the likelihood of future M-series chipsets being combined with a more advanced version of the proprietary silicon stated above.
A Twitter conversation begun by Hachi Tech, and he believes that because the Apple Vision Pro will be released in 2024, future Macs with an M3 and an R1 chipset are possible.
Naturally, this intriguing point piqued Vadim’s interest, and he responded that the Apple Vision Pro is proof that a product from the California-based behemoth can run two custom chipsets concurrently, implying that different hardware, including Macs, could be treated with these SoCs in the future.
Future Macs with a second Apple Silicon may increase GPU performance in various areas, and this could be in the works because the firm no longer allows its latest Mac Pro to accept AMD Radeon GPUs. However, not everyone agrees with this theory, claiming that the R1 lacks any CPU or GPU cores. Instead, it is a digital signal processor built to handle the data stream from the Apple Vision Pro’s 12 cameras.
