Apple announced its new M1 chipset a few days back which will be powering all their future lineup of Macbooks. The chipset provided a great performance when compared to the Macbook lineups that were powered using the Intel chipset. However, since it was the first generation of chipsets from Apple, it was bound to have some minor issues and scope of improvement that every first-generation product has. But if you thought that M1 is going to reign the Macbook lineup for a while, then you thought wrong.
Although it only has been a few days since the M1 chipset was announced, the company has already started working on the next generation of the M1 chipset called the “M1X” for now. As per one of the tipsters called the @LeaksApplePro, the M1 chipset was just the beginning and the company is working on a second-generation that is going to be much more than an upgrade and will provide a bigger improvement in performance.
The next-generation chipset is said to have 12 cores, out of which 8 will be performance cores and the remaining 4 will be the efficiency cores. In comparison, M1 is an 8-core CPU with four high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. Although the details also reveal that the new generation of the chipset will only be reserved for the highest model in the series, like the 16-inch Macbook Pro, that will be launched next year. Considering how fast the M1 processor was, it can only be speculated on how better the M1X will be.
