Apple introduced its new MacBook Pro 13-inch powered by the new Apple M2 chip at its WWDC 2022 (Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) event in June 2022. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple is now planning to plonk the M2 Pro and the M2 Max chips in its MacBook Pro. He expects Apple to introduce these new laptops as early as this fall, between September and December 2022.
Gurman suggests that the MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch variants will come with the Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. The M2 Pro and the M2 Max processors will be updated versions of the M1 Pro and the M1 Max respectively. They will reportedly be built on the TSMC’s 3nm fabrication process. Apart from the chipset, the MacBook Pro laptop is expected to remain the same as it recently received an overhaul. It will continue with the notch on the display design.

Gurman adds that the MacBook Pro powered by the M2 Pro and the M2 Max processors will focus on improved graphics performance. The laptops will benefit from improved 4K video encoding and decoding, faster memory, and higher single-core and multi-core performance compared to the previous generation of CPUs. Going by the synthetic benchmarks, the already available Apple M2 chip is faster by about 12 percent in single-core operations and about 20 percent faster in multicore operations compared to the M1 chip. So, you can expect the M2 Pro and the M2 Max to bring a significant performance boost to the new laptops.

There are also reports of a new Apple M3 chip in development, which might be released in 2023. It will be built on the TSMC’s 3nm fabrication process and is likely to feature in the 15-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Air, 12-inch MacBook, and the new iMac, says Gurman.
