Apple starts mass production of M1 follow-up under the N5P process

According to Nikkei, Apple's next-generation chip that might be called "M2" has entered mass production.

Upgrade of the well-received M1 is coming

If true, this report suggests that the first devices with the M1 upgrade could ship as early as July or about a month after the WWDC event. Likely, we will see the new chip in new MacBook models in the fall.

Nikkei said that it will be based on TSMC's N5P process with a 20 percent improvement in speed and 30 percent better power efficiency versus the current M1 chips fabbed on the N5 (5nm) process.

There are no other details about the upcoming Apple chips, but it is expected to add more CPU and GPU cores as well as NPU cores.

Last year, Bloomberg said that M1's successor might feature 20 CPU cores for its high-end laptops.

To recap, M1 is the first Apple-made chip for PCs after years of using Intel. It's a chip with a CPU that is up to 3.6x faster, 8-core GPU that is up to 5x faster, Machine Learning that is up to 9x faster, and SSD performance that is up to 2x faster than previous Intel-based Macs.

AND, the M2 or whatever it will be called will surely be better than the M1.
