Apple M2 Pro chip could start production this year — with this big upgrade

With the Apple M2 chip announced at WWDC 2022 just a few days ago, performance fans may be wondering if and when we’ll get more powerful versions of the new silicon. The apparent answer is soon, according to research published by Jeff Pu of Haitong Intl Tech Research and seen by 9to5Mac (opens in new tab).

Pu writes that Apple will start mass production of the M2 Pro chip with its current fabrication partner TSMC to make so-called M2 Pro chips later this year. More importantly, Apple and TSMC are apparently going to switch to a 3-nanometre process to build them. That’s important because the standard M2, as well as all of the Apple M1 chip family, are 5-nanometre chips.
