TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Guo “strongly” believes that the upcoming MacBook Air redesign will feature the M1 chip rather than the widely anticipated “M2” upgrade. Go commented To do 9to5Mac Then Tweet Expect “all new” laptop design with more color options and less LED screen.
This is a redesigned MacBook Air M2. It was previously reported that the chip was present Written by Mark Gorman of Bloomberg. Apple may decide its own naming for its chips based on marketing reasons, but if the M1’s naming scheme follows the A-series chips in iPhones and iPads, the next number will indicate an improvement in CPU design. M1 chipsets, M1 Pro, Max and Ultra reportedAll use different CPU core configurations based on the iPhone 12’s A14 chip.
So, the M2 could use A15 or A16-derived cores in this year’s upcoming iPhones. As for the new MacBook Air, if it sticks to the M1 chip and brand, it can theoretically provide performance improvement by adding more cores. The M1 already has 7- and 8-core GPU variants, and Apple is testing an unnamed chip with 8 CPU cores and 10 GPU cores, according to Kurman. It could be M2 or an upgraded M1.
Kuo expects the new MacBook Air to begin mass production later this year or in the third quarter.
