Apple’s home-grown silicon continues to surprise. The new M1 Max chip – with 32 graphics cores – may rival Sony’s brand-new game console in terms of graphics performance. And that’s without a dedicated graphics card, of course.
Apple’s new chips are so powerful
, they’re already leaving Intel and AMD in the dust. And now Apple is gunning for Nvidia, too.
Just wait until the next iteration of Apple Silicon, which is destined for the upcoming Mac Pro and iMac. It’s rumored to come in two configurations, with up to 4X the number of CPU and GPU cores as the M1 Max. That’s 40 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores!
If I were Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s CEO, I’d be quaking in my boots.
