Apple plans to launch several new Macs over the next several months, including new MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and Mac Pro models, according to Apple. BloombergMark Gorman.


In his recent “Power On” newsletter, Gurman said that Apple continues to work on the first Apple ‌Silicon Mac Pro‌, as the company is reported to be ramping up testing of the device internally. The high-end Mac desktop is said to feature chipset options that are at least twice or four times as powerful as the M2 Max, dubbed ‌M2‌ Ultra and ‌M2‌ Extreme. Gurman expects the ‌Mac Pro‌ to be offered with options for 24 and 48 CPU cores, 76 and 152 graphics cores, as well as up to 256GB of memory.

Gurman added specific information about a specific ‌Mac Pro‌ configuration apparently undergoing active testing at Apple: a model with 24 CPU cores (including 16 performance cores and eight efficiency cores), 76 graphics cores, and 192GB of memory. The device is said to be running macOS Ventura 13.3.

As expected, Gurman said the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will be available in ‌M2‌ Pro and ‌M2‌ Max configurations. The ‌M2‌ Max is said to have 12 CPU cores (with eight performance cores and four efficiency cores) and 38 GPU cores, and will continue to offer up to 64GB of memory. The ‌M2‌ Max is expected to remain available across two display size models.

It is claimed that the next-generation Mac mini‌ will have the same M2‌ chip as the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Apple has tested the M2 Pro chip inside the new Mac mini, which features an increased core count, but Gurman didn’t provide any further clarification on whether the company is going with that model.

While he doesn’t expect the new ‌Mac Pro‌ to launch until 2023, Gorman said he expects to launch the next generation of MacBook Pro and Mac mini models “in the coming months.”
