The Xcode 13 beta suggests that Mac Pro may be equipped with new Intel CPU
About a month ago, there were reports that Apple was developing a new Mac Pro, its size will be significantly reduced, similar to the design of the Power Mac G4 Cube 20 years ago. This workstation will use Apple’s high-end self-developed chips, including two products with different specifications. Code-named Jade 2C-Die is a 20-core chip, including 16 performance cores and 4 energy-efficient cores. The code-named Jade 4C-Die is a 40-core chip, including 32 performance cores and 8 energy-efficient cores.
This means that it is likely that on high-end models, Apple will update the platform using Intel processors at least once, and retain this product line. Perhaps Apple’s self-developed chip plan is progressing on the high-end product line, not as fast as everyone thought. At the beginning of this year, there were rumors that Apple was working on two lines simultaneously in the development of the new Mac Pro. One is still using Intel’s chip, and the other is a self-developed chip, but the model with a self-developed chip is smaller, only half of the current version.
