Apple’s A16 core will stand at 5nm, while the M2 will stand at 3nm

The A16 for the iPhone 14 Pro versions can use the same manufacturing process as the A15, according to leaks from Apple supply chain. The new M2 engine, on the other hand, would say it uses a 3-nanometer production method instead of a 4-nanometer. Even more surprising, Apple may be working on a new M1 processor model. “Strong source” has introduced TSMC’s next generation ideas to ShrimpApplePro, according to a post on Twitter. Generations of Apple’s System-on-a-Chip (SoC) are manufactured by TSMC. TSMC currently uses a 5-nanometer manufacturing process to manufacture A14, A15, and M1 machines.

According to the leak, that represents the same as the Apple A16 chip, which is said to be identical for use in the iPhone 14 Pro models. The basic iPhone 14 variants will also have A15 chips with performance improvements. While many think TSMC will use its new 4-nanometer system for the A16, that may not be the case. If true, the A16 chip could be a less substantial upgrade than previously thought. Instead, according to both ShrimpApplePro and observation analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, performance improvements will come from the phone’s memory. Both suggest that the iPhone 14 will feature 5 LPDDR memory chips. It is also about 30% more energy-efficient.

On the other hand, the M2 chip will use the 3-nanometer process of TSMC. Your production model will ignore the 4-nanometer total process. In theory, the M2 will represent Apple’s first custom ARMv9. Meanwhile, the tracker Apple is working on a final variant of its M1 SoC family. Instead of using A14 cores, it will get the same cores found in the A15 Bionic chip.

It does not matter what computer may use this new M1 variant. It could be a hint-in Mac Pro, or maybe a 2022 MacBook Air. Kuo predicts the upcoming MacBook Air will delay the M1 crash rather than the new M2 SoC display. WWDC is less than two weeks old, so we may have an overview of the new M1 variant soon. It is unlikely that Apple will reveal anything about the A16 chip until the release of the iPhone 14 in the fall of 2022. This may be all nonsense, though, for ShrimpApplePro says “take this with a big grain of MSG.”
