Apple reportedly releasing new “M2 Ultra” and “M2 Extreme” Mac Pro in 2023
The launch of Apple’s long-rumored new Mac Pro with Apple silicon is nearing, with Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman sharing in the latest edition of his weekly Power On newsletter on Sunday that he believes the new machines will likely launch in 2023, featuring chip options that are “at least twice or four times as powerful as the M2 Max” chip that is expected to come with Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro upgrade.
Dubbed “M2 Ultra” and “M2 Extreme,” the chips for the new Mac Pro will supposedly be offered with options for 24 and 48 CPU cores and 76 and 152 graphics cores—along with up to 256 gigabytes of memory, says Gurman.
“In fact, I can share one configuration of the Mac Pro in active testing within Apple: 24 CPU cores (16 performance and 8 efficiency cores), 76 graphics cores and 192 gigabytes of memory,” says Gurman. “That particular machine is running macOS Ventura 13.3. Ventura 13.0, the first version of the new macOS, is launching Monday.”
Unlike the rumored new M2 Mac mini and upgraded 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that are expected to launch before the end of the year, Gurman expects that Apple won’t announce the new “M2 Ultra” and “M2 Extreme” Mac Pro until some point next year.
- Apple reportedly upgrading the Mac mini to the M2 chip “within the coming months”
- Apple to launch updated MacBook Pro “within the coming months,” says Gurman
