Apple’s entire M3 chip lineup just leaked, and it blows M2 out of the water

The latest rumor to be ground in the rumor mill has come to light, and it’s all about Apple’s latest silicon, still to come next year. In Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter, the specs of the M3 lineup have all been outlined, as well as information that there may be some big jumps in the amount of RAM that the Macs of tomorrow may feature.

There’s an M3 Ultra, M3 Pro, M3 Max, and M3

According to Gurman, the M3 range will feature significantly higher chip counts in both the GPU and CPU departments, as well as possibly more RAM. 

The M3 Ultra, for example, looks like it will be equipped with 32 CPU cores, of which 24 are performance and 8 are efficiency, paired with up to 80 GPU cores depending on the configuration you opt for in a Mac Studio or a Mac Pro of the future. Compared to the (still very new) M2 Ultra, that’s a massive increase on all fronts. This year’s super-powered processors come with 24-core CPUs, and up to a 76-core GPU. The biggest improvement here comes in the form of an increase in CPU cores, as well as a bump in GPU.

The M3 Pro and Max chips are also reportedly getting more cores, with increases over this year’s M2 versions. The Max chips are also apparently getting a bump from 12 CPU cores to 16 cores in all configurations, as well as a jump to 40 GPU cores if you go for the top-of-the-line version. That’s an extra 2 cores. The Pro chips are also going to look a lot beefier, with an extra GPU core in the top range chips, bringing them up to 20, and then another 2 CPU cores over the M2 variants.
