Mac Pro with Apple Silicon processors would be much smaller. Today we came across a design concept of what we could expect from Apple’s future desktops, the Mac Pro. The new models are expected to arrive in a more compact size (similar to the Mini-ITX format) thanks to the use of the company’s Apple Silicon processors. Apple will achieve this by unifying several components under the same package, with minimal energy consumption. M1 processor will allow the creation of high-performance systems in much more contained and lighter sizes, which means that Apple will improve profit margins both when manufacturing the chassis and when transporting them by reducing the volume and weight of the boxes for transport.

According to the latest reports, Apple is already developing its next high-performance processor, which will offer a configuration with up to 32 cores of high performance, although also come 8 and 12-core variants. But what really matters is that they are developing a 32-core processor to replace the processor of its most powerful Mac Pro, for example a 28-core Intel Xeon.
Moreover, the 12-core CPU is already leaked, and it might be called Apple M1X. This new processor is expected to consist 8 high performance (Firestorm) cores along with 4 low power (Thunder) cores.

The new Mac Pro is expected to make use of silicon at 5nm, ie the Apple M2, so these computers won’t arrive until the second half of 2021 at the earliest. In the graphics section, the company would still rely on a dedicated solution of AMD. But that will change in the future, as sources say that Apple is preparing its own dedicated GPU with 128 cores.
