Initial reviews and benchmarks of Apple’s M1 and M1 Max and Pro chipsets have been largely positive, so even if you aren’t necessarily a fan of Apple’s products, it’s still kind of exciting to see what future M-series chipsets can do as Apple continues to further develop on the technology.
That being said, the M3 lineup could actually be one to look forward to because according to a report from DigiTimes, TSMC has started pilot production of chips built on the 3nm process and will most likely make its debut in 2023. While we don’t fully know what kind of features the M3 could come with, a smaller process already offers up various advantages and benefits such as being faster and also more energy efficient.
This isn’t to say that the M2 chipset that is rumored for 2022 will be bad, but rather a chipset built on the 3nm would be a lot more exciting. Apple has also been rumored to have planned a 3nm chipset for their iPhones, but due to issues, that is only expected in 2023, so it’s not surprising that is when Apple would debut the 3nm M3 as well.
Obviously you should take this with a grain of salt for now since 2023 is still quite a ways away, but it might be something to look forward to as far as technological advances are concerned.
