apple: Apple Silicon ‘M2’ chip enters production: Report – Times of India


While Apple is busy getting self-reliant with its M1 chips by putting them in the MacBooks and now, the 2021 iMacs and the 2021 iPad Pro, the tech giant’s next-gen Apple Silicon chip, which could be named the “M2” chip, has entered into production, as per a report by Nikkei. The report predicts that they would be available in mass supply from July this year only. If such is the case and everything happens on schedule, Apple might be in a position to use these chips in some of its upcoming MacBook models or even iPads.
The M2 chip is expected to come with an increased processing power of the CPU and GPUs and also add more than two Thunderbolt ports as the M1 chip supports a maximum of two. Also, since the M1 chip allows for only one external display output, it is expected that the M2 chip could allow for two.
The M1 chip is the first personal computer chip built using 5-nanometer process technology and has 16 billion transistors with integrated graphics. But it could soon have a rival as Qualcomm is reportedly said to be working on the next-generation Snapdragon 8cx chipset. The company is planning to introduce the next-gen SD 8cx chipset to the Microsoft Windows notebooks and 2-in-1 convertibles, claimed a report by GizmoChina.
As per the report, there are two variants of the new SD 8cx chip under development. One of them is the Snapdragon SC8280XP which reportedly comes with 4 high-end cores called “Gold +” that clock 2.7GHz.
