The future Apple Silicon M1X unveiled?

Apple’s M1X is expected to pass a performance milestone.

Apple is expected to continue to roll out its own home-grown CPUs by introducing new MacBook Pro models in the second quarter of 2021. One thing will be particularly watched: the new CPU, which should bring more power to these models designed for demanding creative people. According to multiple rumors, it’s the M1X that should “motorize” these MacBook pro and that’s good news, a data sheet of the future Apple SoC has just been released.

12 cores and rising TDP for the M1X SoC

Still from the 5nm manufacturing process, the M1X would have 12 cores and would do well in terms of performance, notably thanks to a significant increase in tdp. If we look a little more closely at the details, we understand that the 12 cores will actually be composed of eight Firestorm performance cores and four energy-efficient Icestorm cores. The frequency would be 3.20 GHz, but that’s probably for the Firestorm cores only.

Significant improvement on the graphics part?

If the information leaked here is true, the most dramatic gain will be on the graphics part. The GPU part of the SoC reveals that the M1X will have 16 cores and 256 execution units. Again, if this is true, the M1X will have twice as many performance cores as the M1, twice the number of GPU cores and twice the number of execution units. With a TDP up to 45w you can expect a more solid dissipation on the pro macbook, a possibility offered by the thickness of the chassis. Finally, these figures imply that the battery life will not be as spectacular as on the MacBook Air M1. Concerning the RAM, it is indicated on the leak that a 32Gb declination exists, this will be done in the same spirit: no upgrade possible since the memory is integrated in the SoC.
