Apple Preps Next Mac Chips with Aim to Outclass Highest-End PCs

Nice to see the chip space being shook up - look forward to when we have 64 Core+ chips in our personal computers :nerd_face:

Also good to see they are improving their GPUs - gaming on Macs has been pants, maybe their own chips will fix that:

Apple engineers are also developing more ambitious graphics processors. Today’s M1 processors are offered with a custom Apple graphics engine that comes in either 7- or 8-core variations. For its future high-end laptops and mid-range desktops, Apple is testing 16-core and 32-core graphics parts.

For later in 2021 or potentially 2022, Apple is working on pricier graphics upgrades with 64 and 128 dedicated cores aimed at its highest-end machines, the people said. Those graphics chips would be several times faster than the current graphics modules Apple uses from Nvidia and AMD in its Intel-powered hardware.
