Apple’s new MacBook Pro debuted, with 14 and 16 inches replaced with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. However, the new machine has just been released, and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo immediately brought news of the next generation in 2024, saying that it will upgrade TSMC’s 3nm process.

Last year, it was rumored that the M2 Pro and M2 Max might be Apple's first TSMC 3nm chips, but this was not the case in the end. The new M2 Pro and M2 Max were unveiled last night (17th), and it was confirmed that they would use TSMC's 5nm chips.

Ming-Chi Kuo recently pointed out that it is speculated that next year’s new-generation MacBook Pro will use 3nm M3 Pro and M3 Max chips, which are likely to be TSMC’s improved N3P and N3X processes. The laptops are expected to be mass-produced in the first half of 2024.

What’s more, the A17 chip of Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro series has been determined to use TSMC’s 3nm chip. It is rumored that the improvement of battery life is Apple’s primary goal, which is better than the leap in performance.

Last night, in addition to the new MacBook Pro, there is also a new Mac mini. The appearance has not changed. Ming-Chi Kuo also revealed that the Mac mini in 2024 will also maintain a similar appearance design, which means that the rumored glass top cover design will not be available next year. come true.


I expect the next new MacBook Pro models, which will adopt M3 Pro/M3 Max processors made by 3nm (likely TSMC's N3P or N3S), will go to mass production in 1H24. 8JR4LOHFVs
