Apple is expected to launch the next-generation iPad Pro this fall and now a new report claims that the tablet will come powered by the company’s yet-to-be-announced 3nm M2 chipset.
The latest M1 chips by the Apple Company the M1 and M1 Pro inside the new Mac Book Pro are based on the 5nm manufacturing process. It gives them some pretty unusual performance for the power required and it could soon be usurped by the 3nm process. It offers better performance and output. DigiTimes assert that the chip manufacturers TSMC has continued testing the production and manufacturing of the N3 modes to be used in future chip production.
The nodes manufacturing is based on the 3nm process meaning greater transistor thickness and in all probability and improved performance over the existing chips. The manufacturer of the Apple silicon chips is TSMC and from the current M1 series, that are used in its Macs to the A-series chips found in the company’s latest iPhone 13 series and iPads. TSMC is testing the 3nm manufacturing process. The results will almost surely find their way into the Apple devices.
One of information stated that: The N3 nodes would not be ready in time to be used in the iPhone 14 series. It is expected to launch in September 2022 and DigiTimes believes that the N3 will enter volume production in the 4th Quarter of 2022. It is expected that Apple to gain access to these chips in the first quarter of 2023. The main thing is that the M3 is the 1st 3nm Apple chip and Since users are expected to see the 2nd generation Apple Silicon Mac Chip dubbed the M2 make the appearance in 2022.
Might be possible, that Apple 2023 chips could follow the same pattern to the M1 that could be M2 Pro and M2 Max, but with the change in nm process and consequence performance boosts. Apple decided to skip the straight M3 to denote the step change for the users. How impressive Apple’s first few Mac chips have been in its debut 3nm effort could be a real game-changer.
