Apple’s new MacBook Pro will be equipped with M2 chip, without 120Hz ProMotion Display

There will be numerous upgrades and new product launches in Apple’s product line this year, and relevant preparations are currently underway. With the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips last year, Apple further advanced its self-developed chip plan, and the pace may be further accelerated in the future. Earlier reports pointed out that Apple plans to use the new 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 to replace the old 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1.

According to Wccftech, the new entry-level MacBook Pro with M2 may be released in November, which is in line with the timetable of Apple’s self-developed chip transition plan. It is rumored that the M2 chip has the same number of CPU cores as the M1 but will have up to 10 GPU cores, and the overall performance will be stronger. It will also be used in the new MacBook Air in the future.

The new entry-level MacBook Pro isn’t simply switching to an M2 chip to degrade performance. Apple will also make compromises on other specs, such as not having a ProMotion display with a 120Hz refresh rate. With Apple adopting a new keyboard design, the Touch Bar will be gone forever. Although the price will be lower than the existing 14-inch MacBook Pro, it will be slightly higher than the old 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1.

There are rumors that this year’s new MacBook Air will have a mini-LED display, but it won’t support ProMotion. In addition, this year Apple may also update the 24-inch iMac and entry-level Mac mini, as well as launch a new Mac Pro, iMac Pro, and high-end Mac mini. The range of updates can be said to be quite large.
