If you thought the new M1 MacBooks were powerful
, just wait till you see the upcoming iMac Pro – which is rumored to run on a special “duo” M1 chip.
The rumored iMac Pro – tipped to debut early next year – could come with a special combo chip that marries two M1s into an “M1 Max Duo” chip with up to 20 cores, a 64-core GPU and up to 128GB of RAM.
Sound implausible? There’s already evidence that the M1 was designed to be doubled up, and there are plenty of references to “multi-die” chips in macOS.
