Apple to Launch Three New Macs Powered by In-House Co-Processors
Apple is working on three new Mac models for 2018 that could include the company’s own in-house developed ARM co-processors, according to a new report.
The new hardware approach would be very similar to what the company has done with the MacBook Pro and the iMac Pro, both of which are featuring custom ARM co-processors for powering various tasks.
On the MacBook Pro, the T1 chip runs the Touch Bar and Touch, while the iMac Pro uses the T2 that has a more advanced role and which handles security systems, while also powering the imagine signal processor for the FaceTime camera and the disk controller for the SSDs.
While it’s not clear what role the new co-processors would have on the upcoming devices, Bloomberg reports that Apple wants to launch two new laptops and one desktop featuring such hardware.
