The 3nm MacBook might take longer to arrive than we had anticipated. According to a recent forecast from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are imminent, but they’re not likely to use the 3nm process. Kuo tweeted this morning that updates to the superb professional MacBooks “will begin mass production” in Q4 of 2022.
They “may still employ the 5nm advanced node,” which is the same process node as the most current M2 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, according to Kuo’s information. If accurate, this would rule out the use of Apple’s first 3nm MacBook chips, which are also expected to go into production later this year.
According to earlier reports, Apple intended to release MacBooks this fall that featured the new M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. These models should not be confused with the current 13-inch MacBook Pro, which uses the normal M2 chip. Others have predicted that the 3nm node will be used by the M2 Pro processor, which Kuo’s revelation would seem to refute.
While the current leak scenario is perplexing, we anticipate that all will be explained at Apple’s launch event in October. At this event, many new Mac computers and a few new iPads, including an M2 iPad Pro and a 10th-generation iPad, are anticipated to be unveiled (including a possible M2 Mac Mini).
Sizes for the latest MacBook Pros range from 14 inches to 16 inches. The M2 Pro chipset, which is the more potent version of the M2 processor, will power the new MacBook Pro. As a result of conflicting information in numerous stories about the new MacBooks, it is now unable to provide more specific information about Apple’s future Pro laptops.
At Apple’s launch event this October, where we anticipate seeing new iPads and other Mac computers, including the rumored M2 Mac Mini, we hope to get more information on the situation.
