For the Mac Pro, Mark Gurman reminded people of Apple’s plans to release even the SoCs in a solid home last month. We think Apple has developed SoCs with 40 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores, 4x the size of CPU and the GPU cores offered by M1 Max, according to a report published earlier this year. Even developed, Apple has a smaller SoC with 20 CPU cores, which is powered by AAPL and Max Tech to appear in the 27-inch iMac Pro.
Unfortunately, Apple will override the remaining two M1 Maxs on a SoC, allowing it to offer 128 GB RAM, currently a version of Intel’s 27-inch iMac.
The so-called M1 Max Duo will also have double the GPU performance (TFLOPs) of the M1X and its 32-core GPU. As Max Tech discusses below, the M1 Max is more powerful than the RX 5700 XT in the 27-inch iMac, but not about enough of a dream that could be a next generation. Scientifically, doubling the GPU performance of the M1 Max will achieve this.
In addition, the M1 Max cannot compete with the CPU performance offered by the Core i7-10700K or Core i9-10910. Therefore, providing a 27-inch iMac with the M1 Max would be a reduction in terms of CPU and GPU performance. Offering a second M1 Max on the same chip could help Apple bridge the gap of the CPU, too.
Unexpectedly, Hector Martin, who runs Linux for Apple Silicon Macs, discovered ‘a lot of multi-reference’ in macOS. In addition, it said Apple had designed the M1 Pro and M1 Max’s Interrupt monitors (IRQ) with a second half for the second death. Currently, this second half is not used.
Apple is expected to introduce the 27-inch iMac in Q1 2022 with a mini LED display. We think the PC offers a ProMotion 120 Hz resolution, as well.
