Apple to Blow the Competition with New Processor having up to 20 CPU Cores

If Apple’s debut M1 processor did not convince you at how they blew the competition, the Cupertino-based tech giant has more in store according to Bloomberg.

While the current design of the M1 is an 8-core CPU and up to 8-core GPU, Apple is exploring the possibilities of a new design that will have 20 CPU cores (16 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores) to be used on higher-end versions of the MacBook Pro. However, this design might become official on the second half of 2021–for the first half of 2021, Apple will possibly debut a version with 12 CPU cores.

As for 2022, Apple plans to introduce an ultra high-performance version with as many as 32 performance CPU cores–this processor is expected to debut on the Mac Pro. On the GPU side, Apple is working on 16-core and 32-core GPUs and is exploring the possibility of up to 128 GPU cores that can outperform NVIDIA or AMD GPUs.
