According to a new report, Apple has set its sights on releasing three new MacBook Pro models, starting this summer with 14-inch and 16-inch variants. All will have new Apple Silicon SoCs, with up to ten CPU cores and thirty-two GPU cores for the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16.

Mark Gurman has revealed more details about new MacBook Pros, all with new Apple Silicon processors. According to Gurman, Apple plans to release two new MacBook Pro laptops 'this summer', with a low-end model following in late 2021 or early 2022.

Aligning with previous leaks, Gurman believes that Apple will focus on releasing 14-inch and 16-inch models first, before releasing a 13-inch model, the de facto 'low-end' entry in the MacBook Pro range. Gurman insists that the summer 2021-bound MacBook Pros are the J314 and J316, model numbers that REvil, a ransomware group, leaked last month.

Additionally, Gurman reiterates that the J314 and J316 will have a redesigned chassis compared to current MacBook Pros, an HDMI port, an SD card slot and MagSafe charging. While these details are nothing new, Gurman has provided details on the processors that Apple will use in the 13-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros.

Specifically, the next 13-inch MacBook Pro will have an SoC codenamed 'Staten', a direct successor to last year's Apple M1. Gurman claims that 'Staten' has eight computing cores and nine or ten graphics cores. The former will run faster than the eight in the Apple M1, too.

However, the J314 and J316 will be available with two different SoCs: 'Jade C-Chop' and 'Jade C-Die'. Both will feature eight high-performance computing cores and two power-saving cores, along with sixteen or thirty-two GPU cores. Furthermore, these SoCs will support a revised Neural Engine, up to 64 GB of RAM and more Thunderbolt ports.

Gurman has not divulged how much any of these new MacBook Pros will cost, though. Mind you, we would expect Apple to position them in line with current MacBook Pro pricing, which would mean over US$2,000 for the 16-inch model.
