Ming-Chi Kuo: The chips used in the new MacBook Pro are still 5nm

Earlier, it was reported that Apple will start producing M2 Pro chips by the end of this year, which will be manufactured by TSMC's 3nm process.

However, according to the latest news from well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the chips used in Apple's upcoming 14/16-inch MacBook Pro are still 5nm, and mass production will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.

Ming-Chi Kuo also said that chips based on TSMC's 3nm process will not be profitable until the first half of 2023. Apple, as an important customer of TSMC, will of course be the first to apply this process, but it is unlikely to be realized in 2022.

In addition, the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air equipped with the M2 processor have been launched and shipped. The processor is still 5nm process, but after Apple redesigned the internal structure, the transistor scale is larger, the CPU performance is increased by 18%, and the GPU is increased by 35%.

Some people in the industry believe that the M2 Pro chip with more advanced process technology will be improved on the basis of the M2, and the performance and energy efficiency ratio will be greatly improved.

The Apple M2 Pro chip will also be better at graphics processing, which could be useful for professional users who need to perform more demanding video editing, video encoding, and more.
