Next-generation MacBook Pros could count on the M1X chip, rather than the rumored M2

MacBook Pro

Apple could be manufacturing an improved version of the M1 processor, which could be included in MacBook Pros that are released in the second half of the year.

It's no secret that Apple has already commissioned the mass manufacture of the M2processor, the new chip that would mount MacBook Pro futuribles and also new iMacs, but Cupertino may have finally taken a little longer.

And if it was speculated that the new MacBook Pro, which Apple presumably launches in the second leg of the year, was going to mount the M2 chip, an iOS developer claims that they will eventually operate under the M1X processor, an improved variation of the current M1.

This way the M2 chips would not have arrived in time for this year and would be intended for 2022 devices, although this may not be the case.

According to the iOS developer named Dylandkt, who had previously successfully leaked that iPads this year would have the M1 chip, he claims that this M1X is an extension of the current M1 but will contain more CPU cores, GPU cores, and support for multiple external monitors, and so on.

M1X is an extension of the M1 that will contain more thunderbolt channels, more CPU cores, more GPU cores, and greater power draw. The M1X will be featured in the Higher-end Mac Mini, the Macbook Pro 14 and 16, and a higher-end iMac.— Dylan (@dylandkt) April 30, 2021

This developer also adds that for the MacBook Pro to be released in the last leg of this year, Cupertino might even consider placing the name on MacBook Pro on the internal bezel on the screen.

Nor could it be ruled out that this M1X processor is for the 13-inch MacBook Pro while the M2 chip can be relegated to the 16-inch model. We'll see what Apple decides when it advertises these devices over the next few months.
