Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max may be manufactured with 3nm process

Apple released a new MacBook Air at the WWDC 2022 developer conference, equipped with a new generation of M2 chips, which opened the prelude to the M2 series of self-developed chips. It was previously reported that Apple will bring new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro by the end of this year, which will be upgraded to M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.

According to Bloomberg, the M2 Max can reach up to a 12-core CPU + 38-core GPU, but it is not clear the number of CPUs and GPUs of the M2 Pro for the time being. However, the number of CPUs and GPUs of the M2 Pro is still unclear. If you compare the configuration ideas of other M2 series chips, Apple is likely to mainly increase the number of GPU cores.  Unlike the currently released M2, Apple is rumored to want the M2 Pro and M2 Max to be manufactured using TSMC’s 3nm process, allowing Apple to add more transistors and give the new chips better performance in terms of performance and power consumption.
In addition to the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 Pro and M2 Max, Apple will have a new 15-inch MacBook Air. The 15-inch MacBook Air is expected to be more expensive than the 13.3-inch version. At the same time, a larger-capacity battery will be used, and with Apple’s self-developed chip, it should have a good battery life, and even satisfy users’ all-day use. Also, it’s possible that Apple will use a new product name instead of the MacBook Air.
