Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims that Apple plans to announce an M2 Mac Pro in the coming months. In his latest Power On newsletter, Gurman reports that the company is testing a high-end version of its desktop computer equipped with a chipset with a 24-core CPU and 76-core GPU, as well as 192GB of memory. He predicts that Apple will eventually allow customers to choose between two different chipsets when configuring the Mac Pro, the M2 Ultra and the M2 Extreme.
“My belief is that the Mac Pro will be offered with options for 24 and 48 CPU cores and 76 and 152 graphics cores — along with up to 256 gigabytes of memory,” Gurman writes.
He adds that these chips will be “at least twice or four times as powerful as the M2 Max,” a processor that Apple hasn’t yet announced. For perspective, the base M2 has 8 CPU and 10 GPU cores. While the unannounced M2 Max is expected to have 12 CPU and 38 GPU cores.
