Apple’s First ARM-Based Mac Coming Early Next Year

There are reports that Apple will release a Mac with its own custom ARM-based processor designed next year.

Bloomberg News reported  that Apple will release at least one Mac product with its own AMR-based processor in 2021.

According to reports, Apple is currently developing various types of ARM-based processors, ranging from 4 cores to 12 cores, and plans to install its own ARM processors on at least one Mac by early next year.

As part of a project called “Kalamata”, Apple is developing three Mac processors based on the A14 chip to be used in the iPhone 12 coming this year, one of which is eight high-performance cores and at least four energy-efficient cores. He said he would have a 12-core CPU with a dog. Like the A14 chip, the Mac processor is expected to be produced by TSMC, a Taiwanese company, through a 5 nanometer process.

In addition, Bloomberg predicted that the ARM chip will be adopted first in the new entry-level MacBook, and Intel processors will continue to be used in high-end MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Pro.

Since the ARM processor is highly power efficient, it is expected to extend the battery life of the MacBook, and when switching to the ARM chip, Apple can reduce the processor cost by 40-60%.
