Since Apple announced the transition from x86 to ARM in its computers in two years, rumors have been happening about what this transition process will be like. For now it seems that the first step will be to offer MacBook laptops with Apple’s ARM processors, starting with the 13 ” MacBook Air and continuing with the 13 ” MacBook Pro.
The Air would carry the ARM processor with eight cores, while the 13 ” MacBook Pro would carry the 12-core processor. According to the filter Komiya, Apple would already have these two chips ready: the eight-core and the twelve-core. The configurations could be 2 + 2 + 4 cores and 4 + 4 +4 cores, the first group being the ultra-high performance, the second group of cores being the high performance, and the last group the efficiency.
Komiya also talks about a 16-core processor for 2021, which could well equip 16-inch MacBook Pros and some iMac models. Perhaps on the 12th, on the occasion of the presentation of the new iPhone 12, Apple will reveal some more details about its processors.
