Recently, apple officially announced that it will hold wwdc21 Developer Conference on June 8, Beijing time. Last year, Apple announced its first self-developed M1 chip at the developer conference,Sources said that this year will also bring a new generation of self-developed chip M2 (possibly m1x) at the conference.
It is reported that Apple will be equipped with this new generation of self-developed chip on the new high configuration Mac Mini. In addition, many new designs will be introduced to bring new changes to this product line.
First, the appearance,According to Jon Prosser, a well-known Apple whistleblower, Apple will adopt a brand-new design for the new Mac Mini. Instead of a metal body, it will adopt a sandwich design similar to the iPhone, with a glass cover at the top,The overall appearance is more high-end and fashionable.
At the same time, the size of the new Mac Mini has also been further reduced. The overall size of the new Mac Mini is like being flattened, like the size of a mobile power supply, and Apple will provide at least two color matching options for its shell.
In terms of interface,According to the news, the new Mac Mini will have the same interface as the current Mac Mini based on Intel chip, with four thunderbolt interfaces, two usb-a interfaces, Ethernet interface and HDMI interface.
It is worth mentioning that, according to the informant, Apple may also equip the new Mac Mini with the same magnetic power interface as the 24 inch iMac, making it more convenient to plug and unplug the power supply, which will also effectively improve the portability of the device.
As for performance,The M2 chip on the new Mac Mini will use TSMC's second generation 5nm process,While the performance is increased, the power consumption is reduced by 10%, and the number of cores, such as 12 cores and 16 cores, may be further increased. The final performance will be greatly improved.
