M2 Ultra processors are purportedly being developed for next Macs by Apple. Apple is undoubtedly preparing for its significant WWDC 2023 event, which will begin on Monday, June 5, and last the entire week.
Prior to WWDC 2023, Apple is allegedly testing new Macs and a new M2 Ultra processor.
According to a recent story from Bloomberg writer Mark Gurman, testing certain new Mac machines and at least one new piece of Apple || سیب silicon—the M2 Ultra chip—is a part of this preparation. The fact that Apple often announces new versions of its main operating systems and computers at its annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) conferences gives this rumour some credibility, even if it hasn’t been confirmed by the business.
For instance, during WWDC 2022 last year, the new MacBook Air 2022 was unveiled in addition to new iterations of iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. If Gurman’s story is accurate, WWDC 2023 will be even more interesting than usual since in addition to operating system changes, we’re probably going to see at least two new Macs and one new processor.
Apparently, Apple is testing the M2 Ultra in new Macs.
Apple || سیب is testing two separate Macs with two different processors, claims Gurman. According to reports, one is doing experiments with an M2 Max processor that has 96GB of RAM, 8 high-performance cores, 4 efficiency cores, and 30 graphics cores.
These are essentially the specifications of a MacBook Pro 2023 outfitted with the penultimate M2 Max CPU. However, it’s noteworthy to note that you cannot purchase a Pro with that chip and 96GB of RAM; instead, you must upgrade to the 38-core M2 Max option, which brings your RAM up to 64GB.
The other, far more intriguing Mac is supposedly undergoing testing at the moment and is equipped with an M2 Ultra processor. While it makes logical for Apple || سیب to reveal such a processor to follow the M1 Ultra it released in 2022 with the Mac Studio (seen above), it hasn’t yet spoken a word about any intentions for an M2 Ultra. This is only according to Gurman.
In spite of this, it makes perfect sense for Apple to introduce a new M2 Ultra CPU, and there have been several rumours this year that a new Mac Studio might debut at WWDC 2023. It’s also said that a new Mac Pro will replace the outdated Intel-powered Pros that Apple still sells, but it’s not clear if that would serve as the M2 Ultra chip’s testbed.
Even while Apple is currently developing a Mac Pro, Gurman contends that these test Macs are more likely to be updated versions of previous Mac desktops, such as the Mac Studio, than a new Mac Pro.
At WWDC 2023, the truth will be revealed.
Gurman’s purported test computers carrying M2 Max and M2 Ultra CPUs would fit neatly into the stories we’ve heard so far about new Macs making their appearance at WWDC 2023.
Even while it’s conceivable that this news is unreliable, it makes a lot of sense for Apple to introduce new Mac Studios with M2 Max and M2 Ultra CPUs at WWDC 2023. The M1 Ultra was originally presented to us in last year’s Mac Studio, which Apple positioned as a Mac to bridge the gap between the Mac Pro and Mac mini. To put it too simply, the M1 Ultra is a super-powerful piece of Apple silicon that is essentially two M1 Max processors joined together.
Additionally, just a few weeks before to WWDC 2022, Apple debuted the Mac Studio and its M1 Max CPU at this time last year. Even if the timing wouldn’t quite work for its replacement to be shown at WWDC 2023 the following week, everything fits together so well that it’s difficult not to regard Gurman’s revelation as a sneak peek of things to come. Of course, we anticipate to see at least one new MacBook in addition to new Mac desktops and new Apple silicon. The only way to be certain is to watch WWDC 2023 with us. It’s most likely to be the MacBook Air 15-inch about which we’ve been hearing rumours for decades. Follow along for instructions on how to see the WWDC 2023 keynote livestream
