In case you haven’t noticed, you can get a really good deal on Amazon on the current 14-and 16-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro laptops, between $300 and $400 off the regular price. Why such big price reductions? Probably because, as has long been rumored and reported again on Friday by DigiTimes, Apple will replace those M1 Pro- and Max-based laptops with new models next month.
According to the report, Apple will ship new MacBook Pros in the fourth quarter of 2022, and while DigiTimes does not state any specifics, it’s likely going to be new 14- and 16-inch models, since they’re almost a year old and the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro was just released back in June.
The new MacBook Pros are expected to feature the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, which, according to a July report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, will feature boosted graphics performance. In August, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that the M2 Pro and Max probably won’t be 3nm chips, as some projected. Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro uses a A16 chip made with what Apple calls a “4nm process,” but is really a third-generation 5nm high-performance process for chip manufacturer TSMC. So we could see Apple tout this 4nm process for the M2 Pro and Max as well.
The 4nm process would also allow for improved CPU performance, but it could be a marginal upgrade, similar to the 8 percent improvement we saw between the A15 (5nm) and A16 (4nm) in the iPhone 13 Pro and 14 Pro, respectively. The 4nm process could also mean better battery life.
