We may have to attend longer for the 3nm MacEbook than we’d beforehand hoped. New 14-inch and 16-inch MacEbook Pros are on the horizon, in accordance with a brand new prediction from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, however they’re unlikely to be the 3nm course of. Refreshes of the excellent skilled MacBooks “will enter mass production” in This autumn of 2022, Kuo tweeted this morning.
Kuo’s intel signifies that they “may still adopt the 5nm advanced node,” which is similar course of node that the latest M2 MacEbook Air and MacEbook Pro fashions use. That would, if true, imply that Apple’s first 3nm MacEbook chips, also rumored to be entering production later this year, won’t debut in these machines.
New 14″ and 16″ MacEbook Pro with new processors will enter mass manufacturing in 4Q22. Given TSMC’s steering that the 3nm will contribute income beginning in 1H23, processors of 14″ and 16″ MacEbook Pro fashions should undertake the 5nm superior node.

Previous reports have indicated that Apple had plans to launch MacBooks powered by the brand new M2 Pro (to not be confused with the M2 MacEbook Pro, the latest 13-inch MacEbook Pro that’s powered by the common M2 chip) and M2 Max chips this fall. Others have suggested that the M2 Pro chip will undertake the 3nm node (which Kuo’s leak would seem to contradict).
While the present leak panorama is complicated, all will (we hope) be cleared up at Apple’s October launch event. We count on a few new iPads, together with an M2 iPad Pro and Tenth-generation iPad, to debut at this occasion, in addition to a number of Mac computer systems (together with a attainable M2 Mac Mini).
