Which MacBook should I get

MacBook Pro 2021: This is how much performance the model should get - new details on RAM and date

The MacBook Pro needs a new design. The leakers are sure of that. Apple should work hard on it and integrate cool functions. There is always talk of a return from MagSafe, the HDMI port and the SD card reader, while Apple could rely on the still young mini-LED technology for the display. There should also be more USB-C or Thunderbolt ports.

But what about the performance of the Pro Notebook? With the last update to the M1 chip, Apple put the MacBook Air on a par with the 13 "MacBook Pro. As Mark Gurman from Bloomberg reports, rescue is near.

MacBook Pro will get a significant performance boost in 2021

The reliable reporter reports that new chips and a redesign for the MacBook Pro are indeed in the works. Apple should not only plan a successor for the M1 chip, but two variants could be available. According to Gurman, they shouldn't differ in terms of computing power.

Both will get 8 performance cores supported by 2 efficiency cores. In this way, similar to the iPhone, the aim is to ensure that sufficient power is available when required, while long battery life can be achieved in normal operation. A total of ten CPU cores are installed. With the M1 chip there were only eight and the distribution between performance and efficiency was 50:50. However, the integrated graphics unit should make the big difference. Depending on the chip, either 16 or 32 GPU cores should be integrated in order to be able to carry out demanding tasks such as video processing or complex games without any problems.

As Gurman further explains, with the new chip, Apple is also increasing the limitation of the RAM from 16 GB to up to 64 GB, so that the system can handle even more tasks (or app windows) at the same time. However, the main memory and processor are to be supported by an improved neural engine that performs various tasks in the background.

By the way: Contrary to expectations, Gurman sees the redesign this summer and should include both the large and the small MacBook Pro. Apple may let the cat out of the bag for WWDC.

What do you think of Gurman's new statements? Will the new MacBook Pro be a dream device or will it still be a dream? Let us know in the comments.
