Apple to deploy new M3 chips this week


Written by:

Apple Inc. this week will release new M3 chips in updated Mac computer products, including the iMac and the MacBook Pro.

The M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max are built with the 3-nanometer process and include a next-generation GPU with Dynamic Caching.

Dynamic Caching is said to significantly increase performance for pro apps and games.

Performance cores are up to 30 percent faster and efficiency cores are up to 50 percent faster than the M1 chips.

M3 includes an 8-core CPU and support for up to 24GB of unified memory. M3 Pro includes a 12-core CPU and support for up to 36GB of unified memory. And the M3 Max includes a 16-core CPU with 12 performance cores and four efficiency cores with support for up to 128GB of unified memory.

The final chips will sport an enhanced Neural Engine at up to 60 percent faster than M1 chips. In addition, all three M3 chips have an advanced media engine for hardware acceleration in H.264, HEVC, ProRes and ProRes RAW codecs.
