Apple has been busy distancing itself from Intel and replacing all of its Mac computers with in-house processors based on ARM technology. According to a new report from Bloomberg, one of these will be a new Mac Pro desktop computer that features a CPU with up to 40 mixed cores (32 high-performance cores, eight high-efficiency cores)—a substantial increase over Intel’s 28-core Mac Pro chips. These next-generation Mac Pro desktops are also said to feature up to 128 graphics cores and echo the design of the current model.

The new Mac Pro has been in the works for several months and is expected to look like a smaller version of the current design, which was launched in 2019, Bloomberg News has reported. Apple has also been working on a larger iMac with in-house processors, but development of that version was paused months ago in part to let Apple focus on releasing the redesigned 24-inch model this month.
