Apple is all set and ready to launch new MacBook Pro and desktop with 40 cores along with revamped MacBook Air design along with a few new product launches.

2021 seems like a busy year for Apple as the brand readies to launch a range of new Mac laptops along with desktops with faster processors, improved connectivity and latest designs, all in an effort to replace the need to replace Intel chips.

The range of new updates and overhaul from Apple is going to include a range of new Macs, along with MacBook Pro and MacBook Air along with its desktop computers with Mac Pro, iMac, and Mac mini.

The upgraded and redesigned MacBook Pro is expected to come out early this summer, followed by the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro workstation. The higher end Mac machines are expected to be equipped with in-house processors with unmatched performance and efficiency better than the current M1 chips.

The redesigned MacBook Pro will be available with 14-inch and 16-inch displays, with a stunning redesigned chassis with external ports, including HDMI and SD card slot for enhanced efficiency. It will also support the magnetic MagSafe charger.

Apple further announced that the 24-inch iMac is going to be available from May 24, 2021 in stores. Apple has been witnessing a rampant rise in their sales of Macs and PC shipments, offering the maximum over the year growth like never before.

It was just last fall that Apple started switching the Intel processors with their own in-house processors, the M1 chips. The new chip was designed to function on less power but offer similar efficiency like how it would with a mobile device.

The new lineup of Mac and PC devices are expected to further come with even more powerful reiterations of the company’s in-house silicon. These new devices will feature better graphics and computing cores to streamline the speed and efficiency like never before.

For the new MacBook Pro, the devices will likely be powered by two different chips, including the Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die, both of which are codenames at this point. The chips are rumored to come with eight high-performance cores with two additional energy efficient cores, bringing it to a total of 10-cores.

While the high-performance cores are designed to tackle heavy and intensive applications, the energy efficient cores will contribute to saving battery and helping with minimal tasks like web browsing.

The new chipsets are also going to be integrated with 64 gigabytes of memory as compared to the current M1 chips that come with 16 GB maximum memory.

Not just the portable laptops and mobile devices, Apple has been consistently working on improving their PC performance and lineup too.

The upcoming Mac mini is also going to feature the same chip as the MacBook Pro, offering uninterrupted performance and efficiency. While nothing is set in stone yet, Apple will likely have to replace the current Intel-integrated Mac minis it sells with their own chipset.

As for the upcoming Mac Pro desktop that is expected to be released next year, the device will come with an option between two processors with 3x to 4x better and improved performance as compared to the new MacBook Pro chipset.
