New Mac Pro: up to 40-core CPU and 128-core GPU, coming in 2022

The rumor: Apple’s next Mac Pro with Apple Silicon inside will be wildly powerful, according to Mark Gurman (88.7% accurate, via Bloomberg).


  • “Buyers of the high-end Mac Pro desktop planned for next year will likely have a choice of two processors that are either twice or four times as powerful as the new high-end MacBook Pro chip” Gurman says
  • 20 or 40-core CPU configurations will be available, with 64 or 128-core GPU options
  • The next Mac Pro will feature a significantly smaller design and is expected to release sometime next year

Our take: This is the fullest vision of Apple Silicon yet: Apple was never planning to just replace Intel, they were planning to succeed it. With CPU and GPU power this nuts, I’ll be buying this Mac Pro the day it comes out in 2022.
