After introducing the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro M2, Apple is expected to release several more MacBook M2s between 2022 and 2023. In the latest edition of his weekly newsletter "Power On", Mark Gorman, a prominent journalist at Bloomberg News, said that the company is pursuing a fundamental goal and plans to release the MacBook Pro with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips early this fall.

According to Mark Gorman, the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 inch with more powerful M2 processors are currently in the works. He said the overall design and capabilities of the devices will likely remain the same, as Apple has just released a new generation of the device with a redesigned design, more ports, a MagSafe charger, a better display and an improved webcam.
Bloomberg journalist went on to say that the new 14-inch and 16-inch models are expected to be equipped with the new M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. They follow the same process as Apple's M1 Pro and M1 Max chips last year. Gorman also points out an important point about the expectations of the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips: "I believe that in these chips, like the M2 chip, Apple will focus more on the graphics part."
chip benchmarks The M2 in the MacBook Pro shows that its single-core performance is about 11.56% faster than the M1 chip, and its multi-core performance is also increased by about 19.45%. The M1 chip also includes some features only found in higher-end M1 family processors, such as increased performance in 4K video encoding and decoding and support for faster LP5 memory.
In this regard, Gorman believes that The Mac M2 Pro and M2 Max will focus on the graphics department, and this news could be great for professional users who need to do heavy work such as video editing, coding, and more. Another point mentioned by this journalist is the time of introducing these products. According to him, the MacBook Pro M2 Pro and M2 Max will probably be introduced between the fall of 2022 and the spring of 2023. Gorman also believes that given Apple's continued supply chain challenges, it is a bit difficult to predict exactly when these products will hit store shelves. 16-inch with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, he mentioned other products such as Mac Mini with M2 chip, Mac Mini with M2 Pro chip, Mac Pro with M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme chips as possible and future Apple products. There have been rumors about Apple's new Mac Mini for some time. Currently, it is not clear when Apple plans to unveil the next generation of this product or when it will phase out its Intel counterpart. But according to rumors, Apple's new Mac Mini will use the same design as the current generation Mac Mini. In other words, the new Mac Mini will use the same simple aluminum design that the company has used for its products since 2010. has benefited Currently, although the low-end model of the Mac Mini uses the M1 chipset, users have no choice but to use Intel processors to use the high-end model. But it was said earlier that the more powerful model of this computer will be introduced with M2 Max and M2 Pro chips.
Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Po said in a report that Apple's supplier TSMC will begin mass production of the new and more powerful M2 Pro chip later this year. According to a report published by this analyst, Apple will continue with TSMC as Apple's silicon chip supplier.
The Taiwanese chip giant is expected to start mass production of Apple's new M2 Pro chip later this year. According to rumors and speculations, it will be produced based on the 3nm manufacturing process. The scale of a chip in nanometers indicates the distance between its transistors. The smaller the distance, the better the performance and speed of that chip. It should be seen what other news will be published in this matter in the coming days.
