Apple is gearing up to unveil three new M3 chips at the “Scary Fast” Mac event scheduled for Monday night, as reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. These chips, namely the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max, are expected to be part of a series of hardware announcements during the event, commencing at 8 PM ET. Gurman had previously indicated that Apple is preparing to introduce a new 24-inch iMac, which might be presented at the event, alongside upgraded MacBook Pros featuring the new M3 chip lineup.
In his Power On newsletter, Gurman details that the standard M3 chip is likely to feature an eight-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, similar to the M2, with enhancements in performance speed and memory. Additionally, he notes that Apple is actively exploring various configurations for both the M3 Pro and M3 Max chips. The M3 Pro could potentially come with a 12-core CPU and an 18-core GPU, with the option for a higher-tier configuration boasting a 14-core CPU and a 20-core GPU. Meanwhile, the M3 Max is anticipated to offer a robust configuration with 16 CPU cores and either 32 or 40 GPU cores.
To get the complete picture, we’ll have to wait until Apple’s unusual October event kicks off tomorrow night. Fortunately, the wait won’t be long. Join us here to witness all the exciting developments as they unfold.
