Apple M3 Max 30-Core GPU

The Apple M3 Max 30-Core GPU is a self-designed graphics card in the Apple M3 SoC and offers 30 of the 40 cores that are included in the chip. According to Apple, the GPU uses a new architecture and now offers dynamic caching, mesh shading and ray tracing acceleration.

The graphics card can access up to 96 GB LPDDR5-6400 unified memory via a 512 bit memory bus (max 400 GBit/s). Thanks to dynamic caching, the GPU only reserves as much memory as is required.

Since the SoC is manufactured in the current 3nm (probably N3B) at TSMC.
