Apple took the M1 chip it designed and released last year to replace Intel’s processors and shot it up with steroids to create two new powerful chips. The M1 Pro and the M1 Max are both built using TSMC’s 5nm process node. The M1 Pro sports a transistor count of 33.7 billion transistors, more than twice the 16 billion found inside the M1.
The M1 Pro offers a 70% hike in CPU performance and two times the graphics performance delivered by the M1. The component will be equipped with ten cores and eight of them will be high-performance cores and two efficiency cores.
