The ‘slow’ M2 Mac Pro Could Come With A 24-core CPU, 76-core GPU, And 192GB Of RAM

While we wait for new M2 MacBook Pros and Mac minis, one machine still looms over the completion of Apple’s silicon transition: the Mac Pro. We don’t know much about it yet, but a new report confirms one important aspect of Apple’s upcoming workstation: it will feature the most powerful Mac processor ever produced.

Mark Gurman reveals some details about the Mac Pro’s M2 Ultra processor in his latest Power On newsletter, which “will include chip options that are at least twice or four times as powerful as the M2 Max.” He claims that configuration options will include 24- and 48-core CPUs, 76- and 152-core GPUs, and memory up to 256GB.

He claims that the machine in “active testing” isn’t quite as powerful, but it’s still a beast: 24 CPU cores (16 performance and 8 efficiencies), 76 graphics cores, and 192GB of memory. When you compare that to the high-end Mac Studio, which has 20 CPU cores (16 performance and 4 efficiencies), 48 graphics cores, and 128GB of memory, you’re looking at a machine that will crush any task you throw at it.

Gurman does not specify a release date for the new machine, but it runs macOS Ventura 13.3; given that macOS 12.3 Monterey was released in March, right around the time of Apple’s “Peek Performance” event, this suggests a spring release. Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, John Ternus, teased the launch of the Mac Pro for “another day” during that keynote.

That day now appears to be outside of Apple’s promised two-year completion of the silicon transition. Apple has only a few weeks to deliver Apple silicon updates to its remaining Intel Macs, the Mac Pro, and the high-end Mac mini, and it’s unlikely that both will be delivered. However, based on the leaked specifications, the wait will be worthwhile.
