With this image of Craig Federighi opening the first Mac with M1 from the secret Apple Park lab, the project was started Apple silicon, undoubtedly the most important of the company in recent years.
And during that presentation, the vice president of Apple's software department explained that the transition of all Macs based on Intel processors to new ones with ARM architecture, would last two years. And everything seems that the dates will be met, with the renewal for the end of this year of the latest Mac with an Intel chip, the Mac Pro.
Apple's famous news leaker, DylanDTK, has posted on your account Twitter that Apple plans to complete the so-called "Apple Silicon" transition by the end of this year. It explains that by the fourth quarter of 2022, Apple will launch its new Mac Pro with an ARM processor, to replace the current model equipped with Intel.
Said new model will be equipped with a new M-series processor. It will not be from the M2 family, but a more powerful M1 than the current M1 Max. could hold up to 40 nuclei processing and 128 nuclei for graphics. A real barbarity.
If we take into account that the company plans to replace the current 27-inch iMac soon, with an Intel processor, for a new Apple Silicon, (possibly 32 inches) then only the Mac Pro will remain as the last bastion of Intel within the Apple computer offer.
So when Apple's most powerful Mac gets a makeover back in the fourth trimester this year, the Apple Silicon project will cease to be a "project" and will become history, since the change from Apple's Macs, all based on Intel processors, to having them all with their own processors with ARM architecture will have been completed .
