According to information shared by MacRumors forum Amethyst, Apple’s next 2022 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which feature M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, will have “high memory with very high bandwidth.”
Currently 2021 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models come with Samsung LPDDR5 memory, with the M1 Pro chip offering memory bandwidth of up to 200GB/s and the M1 Max chip up to 400GB/s. Based on speculation, it is possible that the new MacBook Pro model will come with Samsung’s latest LPDDR5X memory, with 33% more memory bandwidth and 20% less power. This will bring the memory bandwidth to 300GB/s for the M2 Pro and 600GB/s for the M2 Max.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman expects few changes to the next MacBook Pro models other than the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips. A press release is expected in November to announce the new laptops. Apple has introduced new Macs in November several times in recent years, including the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro and the first three Macs with the M1 chip in 2020.
iGeekphone has learned that 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips were released in October 2021 and feature a completely redesigned display with fluted bangs, It also adds HDMI ports, MagSafe magnets and SD card readers.
