Apple tipster hints at 64-core ARM monster chip after the M1

Tipster @LeaksApplePro hinted that Cupertino’s working on a massive 64-core ARM-based chip, possibly for future iterations of the Mac Pro. Details are thin on the ground, but the silicon could pose a threat to both Intel and AMD if it materialises.

Tipster @LeaksApplePro posted a very cryptic tweet recently, claiming “64 cores lol, will tell you soon.” We’d advise taking this with more than a pinch of salt. However, the tweet appears to refer to possible multi-core Apple Silicon configurations that we might see Cupertino out in the years to come. 

An earlier Bloomberg report claimed that Apple was working on a 32-core ARM-based part for upcoming Mac Pros, though this will only arrive in late 2021. The 64-core part that @LeaksApplePro alludes to will probably see the light of day even later.

We have very little information to go on, but even then, this looks like a significant threat to Intel and AMD. Apple’s custom 5nm ARM-based silicon performs exceptionally well in native workloads. In software written for ARM chips, the 8-core Apple M1 hangs in there with top-end Ryzen and Tiger Lake chips, with a single-core advantage. A 64-core core chip could offer remarkable levels of performance for creatives and video editors.
