New Mac Pro with M2 Ultra Chip coming from Apple

This quarter has started relatively slowly for Apple, but this promises to change as there is a rumored new M2 Ultra Chip processor Mac on the horizon. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Mac Pro with M2 Ultra should prove to be the to-date fastest Mac thanks to this new generation processor.

The anticipated announcement would mark the beginning of the move to M2 Ultra, eclipsing the M1 Ultra processor as Apple’s most powerful offered option. The M1 family has served as Apple’s in-house replacement for older Intel processors since 2020.

Performance at a cost

As discussed last year, M1 processors initially had a number of integration issues with Teams, Outlook and other Microsoft suites. This was eventually fixed, initially by Apple introducing the Rosetta emulator process and eventually by Microsoft pushing Apple-specific versions of their flagship programs.

The upcoming shift to M2 processors will not be as dramatic as the initial adoption of system on a chip (SoC) architecture. As such, it is unlikely that their introduction will cause large-scale errors or incompatibilities. That being said it is still possible the new generation will introduce teething errors.
