On Monday night, Apple's “Scary Fast” event will unveil three M3 series chips that will be paired with the high-end MacBook Pro and updated 24-inch iMacs. this is expected to happen.
Apple's Scary Fast event on Monday night is expected to focus on the Mac, with updates and new chip releases expected to make up much of the presentation. There have been rumors about what will be shown, and Sunday's report seemed to match the predictions.
In an article in Bloomberg's “Power On” newsletter, Mark Gurman claims that three new Mac chips from the M3 series will be unveiled at the event.
The main M3 will be a 3nm chip with eight CPU cores, four high-performance and efficient variants, and up to 10 graphics processing cores. While this will match the core count of the M2 chip, higher core performance and improved memory configuration support are expected.
The M3 Pro appears to have been tested in several configurations, including one with 12 CPU cores evenly split between performance and efficiency, as well as 18 graphics cores, and another with 14 cores CPU and 20 graphics cores.
Finally, the M3 Max has already been tested in a 16-core processor with 12 performance cores and four efficiency cores. A 40-core GPU was also tested, as well as a 32-core version.
As for the devices that will feature these chips, Gurman says the MacBook Pro line will receive an update. However, since he wrote on October 27 that there won't be an update to the 13-inch MacBook Pro at the event, this could mean it will only be for the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
On the desktop side, Gurman still believes the 24-inch iMac will finally get its long-awaited update.
