Apple’s first arm-based Apple Silicon MacBooks are due to hit the...

Earlier this year, Apple announced its intention to move from Intel x86-64-based processors to its own Apple Silicon with Arm architecture. The company announced that the first Macs with Apple Silicon would arrive in late 2020 – which would usher in a two-year transition process for the entire Mac family – and we, according to a trusted source.

While talking about the upcoming iPhone 12 launch, Bloombergs Mark Gurman only threw in a single sentence that sets in motion what Apple has planned: “The first Mac laptop with Apple’s own processor will appear, among other things, at another launch in November.”

Apple Silicon

MacBooks with Apple Silicon are eagerly anticipated as Apple has touted that the chips will offer the best of both worlds when compared to older Intel computers. They are purported to offer superior performance and also offer unmatched energy efficiency thanks to the use of the 5nm process node.

The first Apple silicon chips for Macs are expected to be based on the A14 Bionic used in the 4th Generation iPad Air and the upcoming iPhone 12 family (or the A14X Bionic rumored for the next generation iPad Pro). In its current configuration, the A14 Bionic has a total of 6 cores: 2 high-performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. In Apple silicon form, however, Macs should be equipped with a total of 12 cores (4 performance cores, 8 efficiency cores).

Arm power

Apple has paid considerable attention to the performance of its A-series SoCs over the years, with iPhones and iPads well outperforming their Android counterparts of the same vintage. However, it remains to be seen whether Apple can bring the same mobile “magic” to its laptops and desktops. We’d be particularly interested to see how the performance can keep up with Apple Silicon when running the Rosetta x86-64 emulation, although early benchmarks showed even promise using older A12Z chips with the Developer Transition Kit.

The latest rumors suggest that a 12-inch MacBook revival will be the first device to get Apple Silicon. Rumor has it that the device, which would weigh about 2 pounds, has a battery life of between 15 and 20 hours, compared to the 19 hors for the now-deprecated Intel-based version.
